MAYBEURY, W.Va. (AP) - A McDowell County lawmaker has been charged with driving under the influence.

State police arrested Delegate Clif Moore during a traffic stop early Saturday morning on U.S. 52 on Elkhorn Mountain.

Media outlets say Senior Trooper B.D. Gillespie wrote in an incident report that he observed Moore’s vehicle swerving and crossing the center line several times.

Gillespie reported that field sobriety tests indicated that Moore was under the influence of alcohol. His report says Moore refused to take a breath test at the state police detachment in Welch.

Moore remains free on $500 bond. The 65-year-old McDowell County Democrat said Monday morning that his legal counsel advised him not to comment.

Moore had been charged with DUI in Columbus, Ohio, in 2011. He received a six-day sentence in that case.
