(Camp Hill) -- A state trooper who acts as the spokesman for most barracks in central Pennsylvania has been charged with drunken driving.

Lower Allen Township police say Trooper Robert Hicks failed a sobriety test and was later determined to have a blood-alcohol level nearly three times the state's limit for drivers.

Hicks was pulled over in Camp Hill, Cumberland County on November 12.

The charges were filed on Saturday and Hicks faces a preliminary hearing January 20.

State police spokesman Ryan Tarkowski says Hicks remains employed, but is the subject of an internal investigation.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Hicks.

The records also don't list an age for the trooper, who lives in Mechanicsburg.
