HELPER — DUI charges have been filed against the former mayor of a central Utah town who resigned last month following his third arrest for driving intoxicated.

Dean Armstrong has been charged with DUI and being an alcohol-restricted driver. Armstrong resigned as mayor of Helper, Utah, in late February after his third DUI arrest.

The 51-year-old Armstrong was arrested in late February after a minor accident in Helper that caused no injuries. He resigned shortly after, saying in a statement that he decided he "can no longer adequately perform the duties of mayor," and would now turn his focus to his family, health and business.

It was Armstrong's second DUI arrest while in office.

Helper is 100 miles southeast of Salt Lake City.
