CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Troopers say a South Carolina state senator charged with driving under the influence had a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit, but Sen. Paul Campbell said that doesn’t matter because he wasn’t driving.

Troopers say Campbell, a South Carolina senator charged with driving under the influence, had a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit on Saturday night, Nov. 4. Campbell told troopers investigating the crash and reporters later that his wife was driving. Authorities say the 71-year-old Goose Creek Republican switched seats with his wife after the wreck. They are both charged with providing false information. (Charleston County Jail via AP)
