An assistant attorney general in South Dakota is accused of drunken driving and having an open container of alcohol in a vehicle.
Forty-year-old Douglas Barnett of Sioux Falls was arrested in Yankton on Sunday. A telephone listing for him could not immediately be found.
The attorney general's office confirmed the drunken driving arrest of an employee in Yankton but declined to name the person. Spokeswoman Sara Rabern says the employee will be suspended without pay for 30 days and required to get an alcohol evaluation.
