JEFFERSON CITY — A Missouri House of Representatives member is facing two charges of driving while intoxicated stemming from arrests in the capital city.
Democratic Rep. Steve Hodges of East Prairie was charged Friday for two separate events, one of which occurred last week.
A probable cause statement released by the Cole County prosecutor says Hodges was arrested early Wednesday in Jefferson City. Police said he was taken to the county jail and given breath test that showed a .17 blood alcohol level. He was later released.
Hodges was also charged last week for a February arrest in Jefferson City.
Hodges did not immediately return a call to his cellphone seeking comment Monday, and an attorney was not listed on online court records. He was first elected to the House in 2006.
