The wife of Senate Majority Leader Terry Bruce was granted diversion and fined for a driving under the influence case.

The Hutchinson News reports Sarah Bruce, of Nickerson, will be given at least six months to complete requirements of her diversion. If she does that successfully, the driving under the influence charge will be dismissed.

Bruce was arrested in December 2013 in Hutchinson after an accident in which her vehicle hit another vehicle. No one was injured. Court records indicated her blood alcohol level was .159.

Bruce sued the state to have her driving privileges restored. That lawsuit is still pending in Reno County District Court.
