U.S. Senator Arrested for Drunk Driving


Republican Senator Michael Crapo of Idaho has been arrested in Virginia for drunk driving, police said Sunday.

Police officials said a vehicle driven by Crapo was stopped in the Washington suburb of Alexandria, Virginia, early Sunday after he had run a red light.

Crapo underwent and failed several field sobriety tests and was taken into custody without incident, the officials said.

He was released on $1,000 bond a few hours later.

The senator is due in court January 4.

In a statement, Crapo said he had made a mistake, apologized for it and promised to "deal with whatever penalty comes my way in this matter."
