Special Events Director in Atlanta Mayor’s Office Resigns after DUI Arrest

Days after her arrest for driving under the influence on I-85, Stacii Jae Johnson, entertainment and special events director in the office of Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, has resigned. She was arrested late Thursday night and was charged with a DUI, reckless driving, speeding and a failure to maintain her lane.

An Atlanta police officer saw her driving a white Porsche at 82 mph in a 55 mile zone near the 1-75/1-85 split. According to the police report obtained by the AJC, she refused to submit to a field sobriety test.

Johnson worked as a political fundraiser and managed a staff of about six people in the special events office. That office is responsible for overseeing the permit processing for outdoor festivals and large outdoor events such as movie shoots.
