(WDAY TV) - Cass County Administrator Keith Berndt plead guilty to one of two drunk driving charges against him in Otter Tail County.

As part of the plea agreement, Berndt will pay $585 in fines and fees and will received a suspended 90-day jail sentence. On September 3rd, the 51-year-old was arrested after an Otter Tail County Sheriff's Deputy saw his SUV drifting and weaving on Highway 210 at 11:30 at night.

A preliminary breath test measured Berndt's blood-alcohol level to be 0.133. Ottertail County attorneys say it's a standard outcome for a first-time DWI.
