JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - State Sen. John Horhn of Jackson says he has pleaded no contest to a drunken driving charge.

Horhn says in a news release Monday that he takes full responsibility and will never again put himself in a position “where a question of this nature might arise.”

He was charged with DUI after a Jackson police officer pulled him over Nov. 14, 2013.

The 59-year-old lawmaker says he will pay a fine and court costs, but he didn’t say how much those are.

The Democrat has been in the Legislature since 1993. His district includes parts of Hinds and Madison counties.

WAPT-TV obtained a copy of an incident report written by the arresting officer, who said Horhn yelled: “Do you know who I am? You are going to lose your job.”
