KINSTON | State Rep. George Graham, a Lenoir County Democrat who represents part of Craven County, now awaits his day in court.
Around 7:54 p.m. Sunday, officers with the Kinston Police Department arrested the 12th District legislator at the intersection of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and East Lenoir Avenue in Kinston for driving while impaired.
According to KPD Sgt. John Stroud, Graham received a $500 unsecured bond and is scheduled to appear in Lenoir County District Court on Sept. 13.
Graham, 67, is in his second term as a member of the state House of Representatives after a distinguished time as a Lenoir County commissioner.
The Free Press of Kinston, a sister newspaper of the Sun Journal and Havelock News, attempted to contact Graham by his mobile and home phone numbers, but he didn’t respond to messages left as of press time.
Late Monday afternoon Graham’s Ford Explorer, with his state House license plate, sat parked at his residence, but no one answered the door.
