A Republican state lawmaker from the Hudson Valley is calling for Assembly Minority Leader Brian Kolb’s resignation after Kolb was arrested and charged with drunk driving on New Year’s Eve.

Assemblyman Kieran Michael Lalor of the 105th District tweeted Wednesday that Kolb should step down as minority leader adding “that he hasn’t done so already is a disgrace.”

Kolb issued a public statement apologizing for his conduct saying he fully recognizes “the severity of the situation," adding he is “profoundly sorry.” Nobody was reportedly injured in the crash in the Ontario County Town of Victor.

Kolb, of Canandaigua, represents New York’s 131st Assembly District.
