State Rep. Bakari Sellers says he has been cleared of all "alcohol-related" charges tied to a traffic stop in Chester County back in 2012 following a University of South Carolina football game.

"As I said that day, I take full responsibility for my actions," said Sellers in a statement. "I was too tired to drive, and I should have made a better choice. I apologize and will do my best to set a better example for our youth and to continue to move South Carolina forward."

Deputies booked Sellers into the Chester County Jail just hours after Sellers told deputies he'd been drinking at the game against the Georgia Bulldogs.

A incident report indicated Sellers failed all three field sobriety tests that were performed on him during the stop.

Sellers' license has been suspended following those charges, but a judge reinstated it back in February.
