BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Bismarck lawmaker says Wednesday he will plead guilty to drunken driving.
Police say state Rep. Dwight Wrangham's car collided Monday night on Bismarck's East Main with a trailer that was carrying wrecked vehicles on Bismarck's East Main Avenue.
No one was injured.
Wrangham had been attending a North Dakota House Republican fundraising golf tournament.
Wrangham says he'll plead guilty in Bismarck municipal court July 7. A proposed plea agreement says Wrangham will be fined $400 and get a 10-day suspended jail sentence and a year's probation.
Wrangham's attorney, Chad McCabe, says the sentence is a standard resolution for a first offender.
The 65-year-old Wrangham was first elected to the North Dakota House in 2000. His district includes eastern McLean County and parts of northwest Bismarck and rural Burleigh County.
