Doug Parker, 45, was pulled over for driving 20 mph over the posted speed limit of 45 mph at 11:30 p.m. Jan. 31 after leaving a party at a Scottsdale, Ariz., golf tournament, US Airways said.
A blood test showed Parker's blood-alcohol level was 0.096 percent, above the 0.08 percent legal limit, the airline said in a statement.
Parker told police he had "three beers" over two hours, US Airways spokeswoman Liz Landau told United Press International.
Following UPI questions about other convictions, US Airways issued a statement late Friday quoting Parker as saying he was "regrettably involved in three other alcohol-related incidents in my 20s. Two involved driving under the influence (one a misdemeanor) and the third occurred in college while a passenger in a friend's car."
Parker is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 21. If convicted, he could face 10 days in jail, a suspended driver's license, fines and probation.
He was also issued a civil traffic complaint for speeding.
