A longtime representative tells the Duluth News Tribune that he intends to plead guilty to a DWI charge after he was found over the legal limit and arrested on Feb. 2.

Rep Tom Huntley, DFL-Duluth, was driving on Minnesota Highway 6 near his cabin in Deerwood around 4:45 p.m. when he was pulled over by a state trooper for speeding.

Huntley, 71, says he was going 8 mph over the speed limit.

After talking with Huntley, the trooper took a breath analysis that showed Huntley's blood-alcohol content was .083, over the .08 legal limit to drive.

Huntley was arrested and released later that night.
