DWYER : I was drinking and driving
He's charged with causing a drunken boating accident on the Magothy last summer that injured several children.
A day after the accident Dwyer admitted he was drinking before the crash. He also admitted to being an alcoholic. He says he started drinking heavily because of a difficult separation from his wife and because he felt betrayed by fellow lawmakers who voted in support of gay marriage .
If convicted he could face up to a year in jail. Dwyer is seeking re-election.
This weekend he held a fundraiser and raffled off two assault style weapons. Dwyer says he will use that money in an effort to un-elect those individuals who voted to strip away amendment rights.
