Uh Oh... State Senator in Trouble
[quote]HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A high-ranking state senator injured in a weekend motorcycle accident was charged Friday with drunken driving for the third time in 20 years. He apologized in statement, saying he was determined to get help with a drinking problem.

State police charged Sen. Pat Browne, R-Lehigh, for the Saturday crash on an Interstate 78 off-ramp after tests showed his blood alcohol content was .09 percent, slightly higher than the state's legal limit for driving.

Browne, who chairs the Appropriations Committee and is a leading figure on education funding and public-sector pension issues, issued a release that apologized for choices he made the day of the crash and expressed gratitude that no one else was hurt.

"It is no secret that I have battled issues relating to alcohol in the past," he said. "Every day requires me to vigilantly control my disease, and I am dedicated to seeking help to regain a solid grasp of my illness."
