St. Paul police have arrested a New Brighton City Council member in an undercover prostitution sting.
Council member David Phillips was cited for engaging in prostitution. The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that the 58-year-old was one of nine men cited Monday in the sting.
Police didn't provide details of the sting because it's ongoing.
Phillips was elected to the city council last year. New Brighton is north of St. Paul.
Mayor Steve Larson tells the Pioneer Press he is unsure how the city council will respond to the incident. He calls the case a "disaster."
