— An Arkansas lawmaker is blaming an incoherent speech he delivered on the House floor on a non-life threatening medical condition he was diagnosed with over the weekend.

Democratic Rep. Mark McElroy of Tillar said in a statement issued by the House Monday that he was treated and released by physicians over the weekend for an unspecified condition after delivering a rambling, incoherent speech on the House floor Friday morning. McElroy had to be escorted from the chamber after delivering the speech.

McElroy did not say what the condition was, or where he received treatment. House officials declined to comment beyond the statement issued.

McElroy said in the statement that he expected to return to the House floor later this week.

A medical condition such as...drug addiction? Looks like somebody's heading for rehab...aka...rest.
