DescriptionA man who ran unsuccessfully for congress last year against Jim Langevin was arraigned in Wakefield District Court this morning on DUI and resisting arrest charges.

56-year-old Michael Riley was silent as he left the court room after entering not guilty pleas and being released on $2,000 personal recognizance but his lawyer has some words for reporters.

Attorney Lise Gescheidt said her client is not well citing he had three heart attacks and two pacemakers. Gescheidt referenced how Riley was in the building when "the two planes hit the towers on 9/11."
