Md. Lawmaker in Boat Crash Says He's Sought Help

Posted:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A Maryland state delegate who has admitted being under the influence of alcohol during a powerboat crash last summer says he's sought treatment.

Anne Arundel County Delegate Don Dwyer said in a statement on his Facebook page that he "turned to alcohol to cope" while facing personal and professional challenges.

He says he's entered and completed an alcohol intervention program and is committed to more treatment, including attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. He has already said he doesn't plan to seek re-election.

Dwyer was charged last month with operating the boat under the influence of alcohol. His boat and another vessel collided last August on the Magothy River, injuring several people.

He said in his Facebook message that he can't comment on the accident since there are pending charges against him.
