MOUNT AIRY, NC (AP) -- A candidate for a state House seat in North Carolina was arrested twice over the weekend, both times on charges he was driving while intoxicated.
Fifty-eight-year-old Randy Wolfe said Monday that he "made a serious mistake" and apologized to his supporters.
Wolfe, a Democrat challenging Republican state Rep. Sarah Stevens, also took down his campaign website Monday, but he has not withdrawn from Tuesday's election.
Wolfe was released on a $10,000 secured bond Sunday night. A Mount Airy police report said his blood alcohol content was 0.20 percent, or more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent.
Police said that when Wolfe was arrested a day earlier, his blood alcohol content was 0.14 percent.
