    A Carlsbad state assemblyman had a blood-alcohol level of 0.15 percent while driving in near the Capitol in Sacramento, the North County Times reported.

    Assemblyman Martin Garrick was allegedly nearly twice the legal limit when two California Highway Patrol officers arrested him. The 58-year-old is also accused of failing to stop at a stop sign and attempting to evade apprehension, according to CHP.

    Disclosure of the blood-alcohol reading came this week in a court document filed by Sacramento County Deputy District Attorney Scott Prentice.

    Garrick has since apologized for the incident.
