YouTube video shows mayor stumbling into band

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WWAY) — A YouTube video circulating around town shows a man who appears to be intoxicated falling into a band.

The video was shot at Harbor Masters restaurant during the Beach Kids Reunion in Carolina Beach on Labor Day weekend.

A person at the event that night tells us the intoxicated man was Carolina Beach Mayor Ray Rothrock. She says the mayor was drinking what appeared to be liquor, heavily before stumbling into members of the band.

Town Councilman Bob Lewis says it seems the mayor was just caught at a bad moment.

"We are elected officials, but we are people and residents just like everyone else,” Lewis said. “We enjoy going out in the community just like everybody else would. I’m not judgmental. I think Ray used to be a boat captain and if this happened when he was a captain, it wouldn’t even be newsworthy."

WWAY contacted Mayor Rothrock. He said he did not want to comment on the video.
