HARRISBURG, PA. (AP) - Police in Harrisburg say the acting chief of Pennsylvania’s Labor and Industry Department was too drunk to sign a citation for public drunkenness.

Forty-three-year-old Sandi Vito entered a rehabilitation facility last week, shortly after news stories were published about an incident at a downtown hotel bar.

The Patriot-News published a copy of the citation in Thursday’s editions. It said Vito was “extremely intoxicated” and the line for her signature contained the entry “too drunk to sign.”

A Labor Department spokesman notes his boss expressed her “sincere remorse” about the incident. He says the attention being paid to the citation is ridiculous.

Vito has been acting secretary since February 2008. She awaits a Senate vote on naming her to the position permanently.
