Republican N.C. House member Andy Dulin faces a DUI charge in Ohio.

Republican N.C. House member Andy Dulin, who is in a tight reelection fight against Democrat Brandon Lofton, was arrested in Ohio in July for DUI, according to records in Erie County.

Dulin was arrested July 2 and charged with DUI. He refused a DUI test, according to the municipal court's website. He also was charged with driving in marked lanes.

His wife, Cathy Dulin, posted his $400 bond.

His first hearing on the case is scheduled for Dec. 5. Erie County is west of Cleveland.

Dulin represents District 104 in south Charlotte. Dulin couldn't be reached for comment.

Driving drunk has become a key part of another legislative race in Mecklenburg County that overlaps District 104.

In the State Senate race for District 39, the Republican N.C. Senate Majority Fund has sent out numerous mailers and TV ads criticizing Democratic challenger Chad Stachowicz for a DWI arrest in Charlotte 10 years ago.
