SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) Sioux City school board member Shaun Broyhill, who was elected Sept. 10, has resigned his seat before attending a single meeting.

Broyhill tells the Sioux City Journal that he's stepping down because he has to serve 120 days in jail for violating probation on a 2004 misdemeanor theft charge.

The newspaper says the 33-year-old Broyhill has an outstanding arrest warrant in Cedar County for failing to appear in court on the charge.

Broyhill, who was to be sworn in Monday, says he's stepping down "since I will be an ineffective leader on the board until this issue is resolved."

The board will likely appoint someone to fill the empty seat until the next regular in September 2015. The board could also seek a special election to fill the seat.
