DULUTH, Minn. (AP) – A Minnesota State Patrol trooper accused of driving drunk on his way to a training session in Duluth has pleaded guilty to careless driving.

The drunken driving charge has been dismissed by the city attorney. St. Louis County Judge Richard Jessen stayed a 90-day jail term for Nick Morse and placed him on 14 months of probation.

Defense attorney Frederic Bruno says the plea agreement was a reasonable compromise. Bruno says it’s likely Morse will return to law enforcement. City Attorney Gunnar Johnson says the 30-year-old Two Harbors man had no prior history and a low test level for drunken driving.

The Duluth News Tribune says Morse must undergo a chemical dependency evaluation.
