Trial Date Set for Sam Donaldson on DUI Charge




    A trial date has been set in Delaware for veteran ABC News personality Sam Donaldson, who is facing a driving under the influence charge.

    The News Journal of Wilmington reports Donaldson was arraigned on April 22 and that a trial is scheduled for June 10.

    Police in the southern coastal town of Lewes stopped the 79-year-old Donaldson on Dec. 1 for a traffic violation. Police say the officer determined Donaldson had been drinking and gave him field sobriety tests.

    Donaldson, a resident of McLean, Va., was arrested and later released.

    Donaldson was twice chief White House correspondent for ABC News. He also co-hosted PrimeTime Live with Diane Sawyer and the ABC News Sunday morning broadcast This Week with Sam Donaldson and Cokie Roberts.
