(Lebanon) -- Investigators with the state attorney general's office are seizing records from the court clerk's office in Lebanon County related to its handling of drunken driving cases. 

This morning, agents searched the offices of Lisa Arnold, the elected clerk and prothonotary in the county.

A search warrant application indicates they were looking for records related to whether DUI license suspension paperwork was being forwarded to PennDOT in a timely fashion.

There have been a series of complaints from judges and other county employees about how that paperwork has been handled.

Arnold didn't return a phone call from The Associated Press, and a spokesman for the attorney general's office declined to comment.
