State Rep. Cherelle Parker Found Guilty of DUI

Nearly two years after being pulled over in Germantown for driving the wrong way down a one-way street (symptoms: glassy eyes, trouble standing. Likely culprit: chocolate martini at Club Champagne), State Representative Cherelle Parker has been found guilty of driving under the influence of alcohol. Parker, who represents parts of Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill, is facing anywhere from three days to six months in prison. Her license has also been suspended for a year, but if her DUI incident was any indication, she doesn’t always drive with it anyways. Needless to say, she’s appealing the decision. [Newsworks]
