State Rep. John Galloway has confirmed he was pulled over Tuesday near Harrisburg for driving under the influence of alcohol. The Bucks County Courier Times reported the legislator was driving with a BAC of 0.13, almost double the legal limit.
“I recognize that I have a problem. I should have recognized the problem the first time,” Galloway said in a statement to the Courier. “I will seek treatment and will enter a rehab program as soon as possible. There are no excuses here. I apologize to my family and friends and to everyone in Bucks County who I am honored to represent. I will accept the consequences.”
Galloway was previously convicted for DUI in 2011. If convicted a second time, he could face time in jail.
With an office on New Falls Road in Levittown, Galloway represents Falls Township, parts of Middletown and Bristol Townships, and Bristol Borough. He has served since 2006 and ran uncontested in his last three elections.
