      Rep. Sellers announces he is cleared of alcohol related charges from traffic stop

      In February, Sellers said he was travelling on Interstate 77 to Charlotte, NC, to visit family on Oct. 6 when he was charged with DUI in Chester County.

      COLUMBIA (WACH) - A state Representative announced Friday he has been cleared of all alcohol related charges from a traffic stop last October.

      Democratic Rep. Bakari Sellers released the following statement:

      "I am very pleased to have been cleared of all alcohol related charges from my traffic stop in Chester County last fall. As I said that day, I take full responsibility for my actions. I was too tired to drive and I should have made a better choice. I apologize and will do my best to set a better example for our youth and to continue to move South Carolina forward."

      Sellers paid a $997 bond on Oct. 8, 2012 and used a provisional license that allowed him to drive to work until his license was reinstated in January.

      In February, Sellers said he was travelling on Interstate 77 to Charlotte, NC, to visit family on Oct. 6 when he was charged with DUI in Chester County.
