(Bismarck, ND) -- North Dakota House Assistant Majority Leader Scott Louser is pleading not guilty to DUI. Louser's attorney filed his written plea with the court yesterday along with a request for various pieces of evidence. Louser has waived his May 12th initial court appearance. If convicted, Louser faces a maximum of 30 days in jail and a 15-hundred-dollar fine. Louser was pulled over early on April 16th when a Highway Patrol Trooper says the Assistant Majority Leader had crossed the center line several times. Authorities say the 49-year-old Minot Republican failed three sobriety tests, refused another, and had a blood alcohol content over the legal limit.
