INDIO, Calif. (AP) PGA of America President Paul Levy is facing a misdemeanor DUI charge after veering off a road in California and hitting a sign last week.

The PGA of America says it will support Levy as he seeks counseling and deals with the consequences of his arrest.

Palm Desert police says Levy was on Highway 111 late Thursday when he veered off the road and struck the sign. A report from the sheriff's office says he was not injured, but police said he showed symptoms of being under the influence of alcohol. He was taken to a hospital as a precaution, and then booked into the Riverside County Jail.

He faces an Aug. 2 court date.

Levy, who was general manager of Toscana Country Club in Indian Wells, took over as PGA president in November 2016. This is his final year of a two-year term.

''Paul Levy has accepted responsibility for his terrible lapse in judgment last Thursday,'' the PGA of America said in a statement. ''He has expressed deep regret and fully understands how irresponsible his actions were. The PGA of America will support Paul as he seeks counseling, faces the consequences of his actions and works through the legal process in the months ahead.''
