Worcester bishop pleads guilty to refusing breathalyzer test

Bishop Robert J. McManus of Worcester, charged last week with drunken driving and leaving the scene of an accident in Rhode Island, pleaded guilty to refusing a breathalyzer test Tuesday and will lose his license for six months, authorities said.

McManus, who was arrested after failing three field sobriety tests, must pay more than $900 in fines and court costs, complete 10 hours of community service, and enroll in an alcohol education program.
