PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A state representative from the Germantown-Mt. Airy section of the city is slated for a hearing on charges she was driving while drunk early last Sunday.
Pennsylvania state representative Cherelle Parker, 38, of the 200th legislative district was arrested and charged with drunk driving just after midnight.
