TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - The misdemeanor trial of Tupelo city attorney Ben Logan has been postponed again.

Logan was stopped at a Mississippi Highway Patrol checkpoint in December.

He was charged with DUI refusal and was released without being booked into the Lee County jail.

Logan had left a party for Tupelo department heads, and city leaders said food and alcohol were donated for the event.

According to a city statement, Logan was not in a city-issued vehicle at the time of the stop.

He was scheduled to be in court Thursday afternoon, but the trial was delayed.

A new trial date has not been set.
