A Wisconsin lawmaker has been arrested on charges of drunken driving and possession of marijuana.

State Rep. Jeffrey Wood apologized Monday for acting irresponsibly, saying there was "no excuse for my actions."

The Wisconsin State Patrol did not release details on what led to Wood's arrest early Friday in south-central Wisconsin, far from the northwestern district he represents.

District Attorney Jane Kohlwey said she had not yet filed charges against Wood and was waiting for police reports.

Wood was elected to the Wisconsin Assembly in 2002 as a Republican but quit the GOP earlier this year and was re-elected as an independent.

He is due in court next month.
