JEFFERSON CITY (AP) - Rep. Steve Hodges, D-East Prairie, is apologizing for being picked up by the police on the suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

Hodges said Friday he plans to remain in the Legislature but is looking into receiving counseling. Hodges told the Associated Press he had been drinking Wednesday night and also had been driving but didn't believe he was drunk.

Jefferson City Police arrested Hodges around 1:20 a.m. Thursday on suspicion of DWI. Officials at the Cole County Jail, however, said Hodges was never in jail and prosecutors did not press charges.
