A South Carolina state representative facing a pair of drunken driving charges isn't seeking re-election to a sixth term.
State Rep. Ted Vick said in a news release Friday he wanted to spend more time with his family.
The Chesterfield Democrat was pulled over while speeding in May 2012, and a Columbia officer charged him with driving under the influence after noticing the car smelled of alcohol.
A year later, Vick was charged with DUI again after officers said he stumbled walking to his car in the in the garage below the Statehouse and hit a traffic cone as he tried to leave. His attorney has said Vick was not drunk and stumbled because he had a rock in his shoe.
Both cases are still pending.
