HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — The wife of Kansas Senate Majority Leader Terry Bruce has withdrawn her lawsuit against the state over a drunken driving arrest.

Sarah Bruce, of Nickerson, sued the Kansas Department of Revenue in March to have her driving privileges restored after an arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Bruce was arrested in December 2013 in Hutchinson when her vehicle hit another vehicle. No one was injured. Court records indicated her blood alcohol level was .159.

In April, she was granted diversion and fined for a driving under the influence. If she completes the six-month diversion, the DUI charge will be dismissed.

The Hutchinson News reports Bruce's attorney notified Reno County District Court in May that she was dropping the complaint.
