Seven candidates will fight for three open seats on the Ocean City Council on Tuesday.

Yet, one of the hopefuls has been arrested for DUI.

Council hopeful Sean Rox, 37, was arrested late Wednesday night by resort officials for Driving Under the Influence in downtown Ocean City.

He also received citations for negligent driving, failure to have plates on both the front and rear of his car, and driving on the sidewalk.

Rox is one of four candidates campaigning against three incumbents for a trio of city council seats that are up for grabs in next Tuesday's municipal election.

Rox, who also owns a wedding photography business in the resort, ran for city council in 2008, and came in last amongst the candidates.

With the election just days away, sources say Rox will stay in the race despite his arrest.
