ST. LOUIS — A suburban St. Louis state lawmaker has been charged with drunken driving.
Court records show that House member Michael Corcoran, D-St. Ann, faces charges of driving while intoxicated and for weaving and failing to signal while turning. He also is accused of refusing to take a blood-alcohol test.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Friday that the Highway Patrol stopped the lawmaker on Feb. 6 in St. Louis County. Corcoran's attorney told the newspaper that he plans to fight the charges.
The 46-year-old Corcoran was first elected to the state House in 2002. He is the ninth lawmaker since January 2007 to be arrested.
