DENVER (CBS4) – A Colorado lawmaker has until Saturday to respond to an ethics commission investigation, but she will not face weapons charges.

Denver police found a gun in state Rep. Laura Bradford’s car when she was stopped on suspicion of drunk driving.

It’s illegal to drink and have a gun, but the district attorney says there’s not enough evidence to convict Bradford. That announcement came as the House Ethics Committee started its own probe.

Bradford has refused to talk. She has until Saturday to submit any emails, records or recipients she deems relevant.

Bradford has said she repeatedly asked to be treated like anyone else and if that had happened she wouldn’t be in the situation.
