WHEELING, W.Va. (WVVA) - West Virginia Delegate Ryan Ferns has been charged with drunken driving.

Police arrested the 29-year-old Ohio County Democrat after stopping his vehicle about 3:15 a.m. Friday. Police denied the newspaper's request for additional details, and a police report had not yet been filed in Ohio County Magistrate Court.

A court official said Ferns was charged at Wheeling police headquarters and released to another person.

Defense attorney Robert McCoid said he will appear with Ferns at an arraignment in magistrate court sometime next week. He declined further comment.

Ferns was elected in 2010 and is seeking re-election this year.
