An attorney for an Iowa school superintendent accused of drunken driving wants evidence collected during his arrest to be inadmissible at trial.

Robert Bembridge says neither a witness nor officer saw Jeff Corkery turn on his car or drive it when he was arrested in November.

Bembridge says there was no probable cause to stop Corkery and search him, and evidence collected cannot be introduced at trial.

Corkery, superintendent of Western Dubuque County Community School District, pleaded not guilty in December to a misdemeanor charge of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

The officer says he found Corkery in a pickup in a bar parking lot. He says he failed field sobriety tests.

A Buchanan County judge has pushed Corkery's trial to May.
