Wood reports for jail

COLUMBIA COUNTY (WAOW) -- Representative Jeff Wood reports to jail to serve a sentence on drunken driving charges.

Wood walked in to the Columbia County Jail shortly before 7 p.m. Monday.

Authorities say he'll begin serving his 45 day sentence on drunken driving charges.

Earlier this month, a Columbia County judge sentenced Wood on third offense OWI charges stemming from a 2008 arrest.

Wood's driver's license was also revoked for more than two years.

When he is eligible to drive again, his car will be equipped with an ignition interlock device.

He also faces charges of impaired driving in Marathon and Monroe counties.

Wood announced he will not seek re-election in November.
