TROOPER RESIGNS AFTER PLEA OF GUILTY TO DWI CHARGE

A New York State Police officer has resigned after pleading guilty to a drunken-driving charge that landed him in a Pennsylvania jail on $1 million bail, a newspaper reported Wednesday.

Former Trooper Mark S. Williams, 35, of Whitesboro was already on paid leave while under investigation of "computer-related" crimes when he was stopped Aug. 4 by Pennsylvania state police, the Syracuse Post-Standard reported.

He spent two weeks in the Cumberland County Prison after refusing to cooperate with arresting officers and the district justice who arraigned him.

Officers said his blood-alcohol level was 0.23 percent when they pulled him over, more than twice Pennsylvania's legal limit.

Williams was sentenced to time served and a $300 fine.
