Del. Don Dwyer removed from committee

Posted: Updated:

A Maryland lawmaker who is serving a jail sentence on weekends for drunken boating has been removed from a committee in the House of Delegates.

Del. Don Dwyer was officially removed from the House Ways and Means Committee on Thursday.

House Speaker Michael Busch says Dwyer's actions have reflected poorly on the House.

Dwyer, R-Anne Arundel, was sentenced to 60 days in jail for drunkenly operating a boat in a river crash that injured seven people and for driving a car while impaired about a year later. The judge gave him the option to serve the sentence on weekends. But Dwyer cannot attend receptions where alcohol is served relating to the legislative session, which began Wednesday.

Dwyer remains in office and can still vote in the House of Delegates.
