STOCKTON - Gary Hickey insists he's still running for district attorney in San Joaquin County, although his chances of winning probably just shrunk.

Hickey was arrested outside of his home just after 1 a.m. Friday when police suspected of him of driving under the influence of alcohol.

The arrest was less than a month after Hickey admitted to News10 he had been drinking during the morning on what appeared to be a work day for him. The interview took place just outside of a Stockton bar not far from the county courthouse.
