  • LEWES, Del. (AP) — ABC News veteran and former correspondent Sam Donaldson is facing a drunken driving charge in Delaware.

    Police in the southern coastal town of Lewes say the 78-year-old Donaldson was stopped Dec. 1 for a traffic violation. Police say the officer determined Donaldson had been drinking and gave him field sobriety tests.

    Donaldson was arrested and later released. An arraignment is set for Friday.

    A phone call to Donaldson’s home in McLean, Va., on Wednesday was not immediately returned. McLean is about 110 miles west of Lewes.

    Donaldson was twice chief White House correspondent for ABC News, covering Presidents Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. He also co-hosted “PrimeTime Live” with Diane Sawyer and the ABC News Sunday morning broadcast “This Week with Sam Donaldson and Cokie Roberts.”

    1. Join me in a moment of silence @ 12am New Years Eve. Maybe if we start with calm we’ll experience more instances of calm for the year ahead. Every year we have started with a bang and its been bang, bang, bang all year long!!!
