Iowa superintendent resigns after OWI arrest

Posted: Updated:

GRUNDY CENTER, Iowa (AP) -- A central Iowa schools superintendent has resigned following his arrest on suspicion of drunken driving.

Court records say 61-year-old Marty Lucas is charged with operating while under the influence, second offense. There is no public phone listing for Lucas. Online court records don't list the name of an attorney who could be contacted to comment on Lucas' behalf.

Records say a Grundy County deputy pulled over Lucas, of Charles City, around 8:50 a.m. Thursday and then arrested him.

Lucas was superintendent of Colfax-Mingo Community School District. He'd recently announced his intention to retire from the post at the end of the 2015-16 school year.

Online court records say Lucas pleaded guilty in August 2008 to drunken driving in Benton County.
