COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina legislator acknowledges he faces a drunken driving charge from a stop along Interstate 77 last October.

Democratic Rep. Bakari Sellers told The Associated Press on Wednesday that a sheriff's officer stopped him in Chester County after the South Carolina-Georgia football game.

Sellers says he was headed to Charlotte, N.C., to visit family members after the Oct. 6 night game.

The Denmark Democrat says he's going through the process like anyone else charged with first-offense driving under the influence.

Sellers says he had a provisional license that allowed him to drive to work until his license was fully reinstated last month.

Sellers comments came after WIS-TV promoted a segment to run Thursday on a legislator who broke the law.

Sellers acknowledged the video refers to him.
