State Rep. Rebekah Warren (D-Ann Arbor) was arraigned last week on a drunken driving charge stemming from a Dec. 27 arrest in Auburn Hills.
But a spokesman for state House Speaker Lee Chatfield (R-Levering) told the Advance Monday that Warren, who is in her last term in the House, is not facing actions to remove her from the chamber or from committee assignments.
As the Advance previously reported, Warren, who also served two terms in the Michigan Senate, was pulled over on I-75 by Auburn Hills Police. A dashcam video showed her vehicle bumping up against a guardrail beforehand. She failed several field sobriety tests and was arrested.
Warren was charged under Michigan’s “super-drunk” law for having a blood alcohol content of .212%, almost three times over the legal limit. She faces one misdemeanor count of operating while intoxicated with blood alcohol content greater than .17%.
