Mercer County Commissioner's statement on DUI arrest

Posted: Updated:

MERCER, Pennsylvania - A county commissioner arrested for impaired driving has apologized to the colleagues he works with and the residents he serves.

Brian Beadier, 43, was pulled over and arrested Saturday morning at a roving checkpoint after police say they spotted him driving erratically. Police said he had appeared to be intoxicated and transported him to UPMC Horizon hospital in Farrell for a blood test.

Beader issued the following statement:

"Last week I made a very foolish mistake, which I regret. I should never have been driving and do not anticipate my voluntary blood test to bode well for me. I have apologized to my family and now apologize to my Mercer County Government colleagues and to the residents of Mercer County who have put their trust in me. I am sorry for my actions and will work to regain that trust. I will refrain from any further comment until the legal process has been resolved."

 -Mercer County Commissioner Brian Beader
