COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon’s son was sentenced to 30 days of home detention and two years of unsupervised probation after pleading guilty to driving while intoxicated as a prior offender.

Willson W. Nixon, of Branson, entered the plea Wednesday in Boone County Court. His home detention will begin Thursday.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1O6nuZL ) Columbia police arrested the Willson Nixon in August after he hit a parked car while driving without headlights.

After the hearing, Wally Bley, one of Willson Nixon’s lawyers, said his client accepted responsibility for his mistake but does not have a drinking problem.

Willson Nixon pleaded guilty in June to driving with an excessive blood-alcohol content after he was arrested in Columbia in May for running a red light.
