Craig Stadler pleads guilty to drunk driving charge

Craig Stadler pleaded guilty to operating a vehicle while impaired after he was arrested for drunken driving, and withdrew from the Farmers Charity Classic.

The 51-year-old Stadler was charged with driving while intoxicated following his arrest Monday evening but pleaded guilty to the reduced count, assistant Ionia County prosecutor Lori Kirkhoff said.

``I very much regret what happened on Monday evening,'' Stadler said in a statement released by the Champions Tour event. ``I take the offense very seriously. I'm embarrassed and feel awful about it. I can assure you I will not repeat my mistake.''

As part of the sentence, Ionia County District Court Judge Raymond Voet ordered Stadler to pay $900 in fines and court costs, participate in an alcohol awareness class and attend a victim impact panel, Kirkhoff said.

Stadler was arrested while driving from Grand Rapids to a media appearance in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn.
