State House candidate arrested, charged with DWI

A member of the Mebane City Council who is running for a state House seat was charged with driving while impaired over the weekend, according to WXII.

Patty Philipps was arrested at 2:30 a.m. after being stopped on Interstate 40 in Burlington, and she blew a .15 percent blood alcohol level on a Breathalyzer test, the TV station reported.

Philipps is a Democrat who opposes Republican candidate Steve Ross in the race to represent House District 63. She has apologized and said she plans to continue with her campaign.
