Brockton State Senator Charged With OUI

BROCKTON (WBZ-AM) -- A Brockton State Senator is apologizing to constituents following his drunk driving arrest over the weekend.

Sen. Michael Brady, the co-chair of the legislature's Joint Committee on Revenue, was picked up on Route 18 in South Weymouth by Weymouth Police in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Brady was arraigned on charges of driving under the influence, negligent operation, and marked lane violation in Quincy District Court Monday.

Brady's office issued a statement about his arrest.

"I want to apologize to the Weymouth Police, my constituents, my friends and colleagues in the Legislature for any embarrassment and distraction that this incident causes," Brady's release read. "I know that as a Senator, I am held to a higher standard, and I will abide by the advice of my counsel as this matter is adjudicated by our judiciary."

He is free on personal recognizance after pleading not guilty, and his office said he doesn't plan to make any more statements until the legal process is concluded.
