Idaho Senator Arrested for DUI in Virginia

Michael Crapo, Republican Senator of Idaho, was arrested yesterday morning for driving drunk in Alexandria, VA. Regardless of social status, Virginia is not a place where you want to get pulled over. Crapo, who was once a bishop in the Mormon church, was pulled over after running a red light and reportedly failed several sobriety tests. After being booked at the Alexandria city jail, he was released on $1,000 bail. 

Following his release, Crapo issed this statement:

I am deeply sorry for the actions that resulted in this circumstance. I made a mistake for which I apologize to my family, my Idaho constituents and any others who have put their trust in me. I accept total responsibility and will deal with whatever penalty comes my way in this matter. I will also undertake measures to ensure that this circumstance is never repeated.

In the past, Crapo has stated that he doesn't drink. Things change.
