LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – The Louisville Water Co. CEO is resigning from his position with the company.

The Courier-Journal reports (http://cjky.it/1MYMtE5 ) that James Brammell’s announced departure came on Wednesday, which was the day before he was scheduled to appear in an Oldham County court for penalties on a 2014 charge of driving while intoxicated.

The company says Brammell leaves after a 20-year career at Louisville Water.

In a statement, the city-owned company says Brammell, who has been the president and CEO since 2013, will retire, effective Jan. 1. He previously served seven years as vice president and chief engineer.

In an email to employees, Brammel didn’t explain why he was leaving. He said he decided to go after “much thought and reflection,” citing some of the company’s accomplishments during his career there.
