Delegate Pleads Guilty to DUI

Delegate Alex Shook, D-Monongalia, has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor DUI, resolving the charge resulting from last week's traffic stop and arrest, The Charleston Gazette reports.

"Magistrate Jack Pauley fined Shook $100," and he "must also pay court costs," the article said.

The newspaper also notes that "Shook later issued a statement apologizing for his actions, calling it a 'terrible mistake' and adding that he was 'deeply sorry.' He is not running for re-election this year."
