New York state's housing commissioner has pleaded guilty to drunken driving.

Darryl Towns admitted Monday he was driving while intoxicated when he crashed his car July 3 on an exit ramp in Mount Vernon.

Towns was sentenced in City Court to a one-year conditional discharge, which means the charge will be dropped if he stays out of trouble.

His driver's license was revoked for six months. Towns must pay $895 in fines and surcharges. He also must attend a victim-impact program.

At a news conference in Albany, Gov. Andrew Cuomo wouldn't say whether Towns would be disciplined. He said he wants to examine the case first.
