Democratic Colorado state Rep. Matt Gray was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving Thursday. 

Police provided an address for his arrest that belongs to a local elementary school. Gray, 42, previously filed to run for re-election this year. In a now-deleted social media post, Gray denied intoxication and instead blamed the incident on his depression and anxiety.

"As many of you know, yesterday I was arrested on suspicion of DUI. I was not intoxicated, but my symptoms of anxiety and depression are such that too many people are worried when they're around me," Gray wrote on Twitter.

The tweet acknowledging the arrest was deleted and is no longer available. Gray's account remains open and public.

Gray was elected to office in 2016. Before serving as a state representative, he was a prosecutor.
