SC Rep Facing 2 DUI Charges Not Running Again

CHESTERFIELD, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina state representative facing a pair of drunken driving charges isn't seeking re-election to a sixth term.

State Rep. Ted Vick said in a news release Friday he wanted to spend more time with his family.

The Chesterfield Democrat was pulled over while speeding in May 2012, and a Columbia officer charged him with driving under the influence after noticing the car smelled of alcohol.

A year later, Vick was charged with DUI again after officers said he stumbled walking to his car in the in the garage below the Statehouse and hit a traffic cone as he tried to leave. His attorney has said Vick was not drunk and stumbled because he had a rock in his shoe.

Both cases are still pending.
