ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Del. Don Dwyer, a Pasadena Republican who is serving a 60-day jail sentence on weekends for drunken boating, has filed for re-election.

PASADENA, Md. (AP) - Anne Arundel County police say a lawmaker who recently pleaded guilty to a drunken boating charge has been charged with driving while impaired.

Police say an officer stopped Del. Don Dwyer's car early Tuesday in Pasadena because he was driving erratically and the officer noticed the odor of alcohol. A police report states that Dwyer identified himself to the officer as a member of the House of Delegates and said he had two beers earlier and was coming from a Baltimore tavern.
