It was a bad week for New Bern's mayor, Lee Bettis. Monday he was charged with DWI. Wednesday his wife called 9-1-1, alleging he'd choked her and pushed her down the stairs during an argument about Monday's incident. Friday, an alderman called for his resignation. Bettis will instead be taking a two-week leave of absence.
