NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - A former leader of the Oklahoma Senate has been charged with aggravated drunk driving and attempting to bribe a police officer after being arrested during the weekend in Noble.

Former state Sen. Cal Hobson was charged Monday in Cleveland County District Court.

A police affidavit says Hobson was stopped Sunday by a Noble police officer who witnessed his vehicle swerving. The officer reported Hobson's blood-alcohol content was .27, more than three times the legal limit.

While transporting Hobson to jail, the officer said Hobson offered him up to $50,000 to release him.

Hobson did not immediately return a telephone message, and court records don't indicate if he has an attorney.

Hobson is a former president pro tem of the Oklahoma Senate and currently a Democratic candidate for Cleveland County commissioner.
