Seven people were injured in August 2012 when Dwyer’s boat collided with another vessel on the Magothy River. Dwyer’s blood-alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit. He was charged with DWI a year later, after police say an officer spotted him driving erratically.
Dwyer’s jail sentence did not trigger automatic expulsion rules, because the charges against him are misdemeanors that do not directly involve his work as a lawmaker.MORE NEWS: Five People Shot Within An Hour On East Side Of Baltimore Sunday
