NYC Assemblyman Arrested on DWI Charge


Police say a Manhattan assemblyman has been charged with driving while intoxicated after his vehicle was pulled over in suburban Albany this week.

Colonie police say Assemblyman Robert Rodriguez has also been cited for failure to keep his Jeep Grand Cherokee in its lane and refusing a breathalyzer test after failing a field sobriety test about 2 a.m. Tuesday.

A spokeswoman for Rodriguez says he was returning to his motel at 2:00 a.m. and apologizes to his constituents.
