State Sen. Scott Lautenbaugh has been sentenced to pay a fine and serve two days on house arrest after pleading guilty to driving drunk around his northwest Omaha district.

Lautenbaugh was sentenced Monday to pay a $500 fine, two days in jail and a year of probation. He will serve his jail time at home under house arrest.

Lautenbaugh was stopped in northwest Omaha around 2 a.m. on February 27 after he was observed to be driving erratically, according to Douglas County officials. Lautenbaugh was taken to the sheriff's office and given a breath test indicating his blood alcohol level was nearly three times the legal driving limit of .08.

In a statement released following the incident, Lautenbaugh said he was embarrassed and was going to take full responsibility for his actions.

Lautenbaugh has served in the Legislature since 2007.
