Ed Arnold hasn't resigned, but unknown if he will show up to Arroyo City Council meeting Tuesday

The city of Arroyo Grande hasn't received a resignation from councilman Ed Arnold and officials say they aren't sure if he'll appear at the city council meeting Tuesday night.

Arnold, 45, is expected to be arraigned Jan. 25 in San Luis Obispo Superior Court after being arrested on suspicion of attacking a 28-year-old female city employee on Dec. 15. Charges haven't yet been filed in the case.

The alleged victim has claimed in court documents that Arnold blamed her for the break-up of his marriage.

Arnold was released from jail after posting $50,000 bail within hours of his arrest.

City manager Steve Adams said that Arnold previously told him he was leaning towards remaining on the council, but hadn't made up his mind.

The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. at 215 E. Branch St.

"I'm making an assumption that he will be there," Adams said. "I don't know if he definitely will."
