CLEVELAND– A jury will continue deliberating Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. in Zack Reed’s OVI Trial.

They deliberated for a couple hours Monday afternoon.

Reed did not testify during the trial; he left the Justice Center and said he will be notified when the jury makes a decision.

A Cleveland corrections officer was the first witness to take the stand for the defense in Cleveland Councilman Zack Reed‘s trial.

She testified Monday that she observed Reed the night he was arrested and did not notice him stumbling or having any problems walking.

Corrections Officer Elizabeth Hester also testified she rode on an elevator with Reed and the arresting officer, and did not smell alcohol.

The arresting officers testified last week that Reed smelled like alcohol and the smell was overwhelming.

Reed was arrested in March for OVI.  It was his third OVI arrest since 2005.

Reed pleaded not guilty.

If convicted, Reed could face up to six months in jail.
