HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) - A state lawmaker charged with drunk driving faced a judge on Friday.
Rep. Robin Comey was involved in a crash on Capitol Avenue in Hartford back in March.
In court on Friday, officials said Comey will enter an impaired driving intervention program.
Police said at the time of the crash, her blood-alcohol level was twice the legal limit of .08.
Body cam footage from officers showed her failing a field sobriety test.
Comey was charged with driving under the influence.
Following her arrest, the Democrat was removed from committee and leadership assignments.
She has since apologized for her actions and said she’s getting treatment for addiction.
