LUZERNE COUNTY, Pa. — A state trooper accused of driving drunk with his two young daughters has entered a guilty plea.

Cpl. Eric Porpiglia of Drums admits to DUI and child endangerment.

Porpiglia was off-duty back in May when he was pulled over near Hazleton.

Authorities say his blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit. Two girls, ages 2 and 8, were in the car.

Porpiglia was suspended from the state police back in April.
