    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) -- A former Congressional candidate and Little Rock attorney has been convicted of driving while intoxicated.

    A judge found Herb Rule guilty Wednesday in a Fayetteville courtroom. You may recall that Fayetteville police arrested him back on Aug. 9.

    Rule did not testify but said he plans to appeal the decision. He said two hours before his arrest he had one ounce of Scotch while having dinner with friends.

    In November, Rule lost to incumbent Republican Tim Griffin for the 2nd Congressional seat.
