LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A member of the Louisville Metro Council may have run into a roadblock in his career.

Mike O'Connell, the Jefferson County Attorney, has ruled that David James (D-District 6) cannot be a police officer on the University of Louisville department and be a Metro councilman at the same time.

A letter from O'Connell to Metro Council members said James may not vote on any council issues until he decides which job track he will keep and which he will quit.
