The chief executive of US Airways will spend one day in an Arizona jail for his drunken driving arrest shortly after his airline's $9.8 billion bid for Delta Air Lines was rejected.
Doug Parker, 45, pleaded guilty Tuesday morning in Scottsdale City Court to one DUI charge, according to the court clerk's office.
Prosecutors asked that a second DUI charge and a speeding charge be dismissed.
Municipal Court Judge Joseph Olcavage ordered Parker to spend 24 hours in jail on March 15. Olcavage also fined Parker $1,646.25 and ordered him to be screened by a doctor to determine if he has a problem with alcohol addiction.
Parker was pulled over at about 11:30 p.m. on Jan. 31 after leaving a party at the FBR Open golf tournament in Scottsdale.
