MOUNT VERNON -- New York State's housing commissioner has pleaded guilty to drunken driving.
Darryl Towns, 50, admitted Monday that he was driving while intoxicated when he crashed his car July 3 on an exit ramp in Mount Vernon.
Towns was sentenced in City Court to a one-year conditional discharge, which means the charge will be dropped if he stays out of trouble.
His driver's license was revoked for six months. Towns must pay $895 in fines and surcharges. He also must attend a victim-impact program.
Towns is a former state assemblyman from Brooklyn and is the son of U.S. Rep. Edolphus Towns (D-Brooklyn).
