A former state lawmaker from Lehigh County has been sentenced to at least three months in prison following his arrest for DUI driving under the influence and assaulting his wife.

Bobby Brown pleaded not guilty to his third DUI arrest. The most recent two drunk driving arrests occurred within the last 7 months.

Son of ex-Chicago Bears Coach Ditka Facing DUI and Drug Charges

Former Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka’s son, Mark Ditka, who is awaiting trial on his fourth DUI charge, tested positive for opiates during a routine pretrial screening. Ditka told the judge the drug had been properly prescribed. But after the judge instructed him to leave the courthouse to go to Walgreens and get a copy of the prescription – an errand expected to take about 20 minutes – he returned more than two hours later without the prescription. Ditka claimed he went to three Walgreens but was unsuccessful in retrieving a copy of the prescription because “their stuff was down.” Ditka was arrested in October near his home and charged with DUI and possession of a controlled substance after authorities said a bottle of Hydrocodone (generic Vicodin)...
