    A Charles County commissioner was charged for driving while impaired on the St. Charles Parkway Thursday night.

    Authorities say commissioner Reuben Collins II, who represents the Waldorf, Md. area, was driving his sedan along St. Charles Parkway and Billingsley Road when an officer pulled him over for driving erratically.

    The officer suspected Collins was under the influence and administered several field sobriety tests, all of which he failed.

    Collins was arrested and transported to the Charles County Detention Center where he agreed to take a breathalyzer test.

    His blood-alcohol level was above the state’s legal limit of .08 percent.

    Collins is facing DUI charges and is now out of jail.
