HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

Henrico School Board member Roscoe Cooper III was back on the job after a weekend arrest.

Cooper showed up for the school board's first meeting since his DUI arrest on Interstate 64 on Saturday morning. Cooper was charged with DUI and refusing to take a breathalyzer test.

The school board went into closed session and then returned with no comment.

A Henrico Schools spokesperson says they are treating this as a "personal legal matter" while the case is pending.

While Cooper was seated on the school board during the meeting, he did not make any public comments about his legal situation.
