VALLEY PARK, Mo.—The former mayor of a St. Louis suburb will serve two years of probation for a confrontation with police that cost him his job.
Nathan Grellner, former mayor of Valley Park, pleaded guilty Tuesday to several charges including drug and alcohol intoxication, resisting arrest and assaulting an officer.
KMOX reports Grellner was charged after he was stopped by police in Byrnes Mill for speeding in June 2012. He drove off and officers said when he was cornered, Gellner spit on them and they had to use pepper spray and handcuffs to subdue him.
Grellner resigned from the mayor’s office. He still faces charges for allegedly using the Valley Park credit card for his personal use and for allegedly using his estranged wife’s personal information to obtain a credit card.
