(Oklahoma City-AP) -- An attorney for State Insurance Commissioner Carroll Fisher says Fisher will give up his state car for the next five months.

Fisher pleaded no contest Wednesday to a municipal drunken-driving charge. He was in his state car when he was stopped early August 3rd in Oklahoma City.

He told police he'd had beer at a charity auction.

Fisher has been driving his state car, using a modified license that requires him to blow into a Breathalyzer to start it.

Attorney Irven Box says the machine will be switched to a private vehicle until the restrictions are lifted on Fisher's driver's license.
