Sen. Michael Crapo (R-ID) was arrested in Virginia early Sunday morning and charged with driving under the influence, CBS News reports.
An officer was on routine patrol when he saw Sen. Crapo’s vehicle run a red light. Crapo underwent several field sobriety tests, which he failed… He was then taken into custody without incident.
Said Crapo: “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.”
Politico notes Crapo is Mormon and has said publicly that he abstains from alcohol.
