CARTHAGE, N.C. — The State Bureau of Investigation is looking into an April arrest of a state lawmaker on a drunken-driving charge.

Rep. Joe Boylan, R-Moore, was charged with driving while impaired on April 10 when his car ran into a ditch on a rural road outside Cameron. His blood-alcohol was measured at 0.17, which is more than twice the state's 0.08 legal limit of intoxication.

Boylan said in an interview shortly after his arrest that he has battled alcohol problems and was working to overcome it.
