TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A northeastern Oklahoma state lawmaker has been arrested on complaints of DUI, speeding and obstructing or interfering with a police officer.

Tulsa County Jail records indicate Rep. Dean Davis, who represents parts of Tulsa and Wagoner counties, was arrested Friday night. He was booked Saturday and released on bond.

Davis was arrested by police in the Tulsa suburb of Broken Arrow. A report says he was driving 54 mph in a 40 mph zone and left of center when officers stopped him, and he smelled of alcohol.

The report says Davis allegedly resisted arrest until officers put him against his car and locked him in handcuffs.

In an emailed statement, Davis apologized and says he was “embarrassed by this situation.” Davis says he will ensure that “this does not happen again.”
