Drunken driving arraignment waived for Lakeshore lawmaker

Ingham County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Lisa McCormick said a court date hasn’t been set for Genetski, a Republican from Saugatuck.
Genetski was ticketed Jan. 19 in East Lansing.
McCormick said Genetski refused to take a Breathalyzer at the scene and was arrested. A blood-alcohol test was taken later.
Genetski was also given a warning about excessive speed and driving on an expired license plate.
Genetski, who said he refused the Breathalyzer test because he believes he passed a field sobriety test, calls the experience “humbling.”
Defense attorney Mike Nichols said his client “still believes he was safe and sober.”
