Sweeney arrested for DWI - again

CLIFTON PARK - Former U.S. Rep. John Sweeney was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with DWI for the second time in less than 18 months, police said.

State troopers initially pulled Sweeney over at 3:30 a.m. on Route 9 in Clifton Park for speeding, police said. Sweeney, 53, refused sobriety testing and was processed and charged, they said.

Because of his previous 2007 DWI conviction, Sunday's charge is a felony for the former Rensselaer County STOP-DWI coordinator, who held the currently-up-in-the-air 20th Congressional district seat for eight years before being unseated by now Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in 2006.

On Nov. 11, 2007, Sweeney was pulled over while swerving on the Northway and found to have a BAC of .18, more than twice the legal limit. An unidentified 24-year-old female was in his BMW with him and it was reported she was partially on his lap.
