DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — Carlton County's attorney has pleaded guilty to driving while impaired.

Thom Pertler pleaded guilty Tuesday to third-degree DWI. That was for refusing to submit to a chemical test. Six other counts, including speeding, open bottle, and no proof of insurance, were dismissed.

Pertler apologized before his sentencing. He says "words can't describe" his remorse.
