MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democratic state Rep. Josh Zepnick says he was arrested for drunken driving and he is seeking professional help.

Zepnick issued a statement Friday through his attorney saying he was pulled over on Thursday night by Greenfield police and arrested. A message left with the police department was not immediately returned.

Zepnick’s attorney, Mike Maistelman, said he did not have a copy of the police report.

The 47-year-old Zepnick was first elected to the Assembly in 2002 representing parts of Milwaukee.

His sister was killed by a repeat-offense drunken driver in 1990. Zepnick says in the statement that his family’s own experience with such a tragedy makes his actions “even more irresponsible.”
