New Port Richey, Florida -- A judge in the drunk driving case involving a city manager has recused himself from the case.

The judge says he and Port Richey city manager Tom O'Neill know each other.

City council placed O'Neill on leave less than a week after he was cited for DUI. 

O'Neill attempted to submit his retirement, but city council agreed he should instead serve a 30-day unpaid leave and seek substance abuse counseling.

No word on a new date for the case.
