State Homes and Community Renewal Commissioner Darryl Towns was arrested in Westchester County for driving with a blood-alcohol content twice the legal limit after crashing his car July 4, just five months after Cuomo chose the former Brooklyn Assembly member for the post.

Last month, he pled guilty to the DWI charges, and agreed to have his license revoked for at least six months, attach a breathalyzer device to his car upon getting his license back, and pay an $895 fine. [NYDN]
