WOODWARD, Okla. (AP) – An Oklahoma state senator has pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor after he was found sleeping in his parked pickup and smelling of alcohol in December.

Under a deal with prosecutors, Sen. Bryce Marlatt has agreed to pay a $250 fine, around $1,000 in court costs and $150 in restitution to the Western Plains Youth & Family Services.

He also was ordered to complete a drug and alcohol evaluation within six months and follow the recommendations.

Marlatt was charged with actual physical control of a vehicle while under the influence of an intoxicating substance. He received a deferred sentence. The case against him will be dismissed if he successfully completes probation.

Marlatt couldn’t be reached for comment Monday.
