Sen. Michael Crapo arrested on DUI charge in Virginia

Idaho’s senior U.S. senator found himself in a Virginia jail early Sunday morning after police arrested him for driving under the influence. The Alexandria, Va. Police Department said Sunday evening in a statement that Republican Sen. Michael Crapo failed “several field sobriety tests” after an officer pulled him over for running a red light.

Crapo is a Mormon. The Associated Press has reported that he abstains from alcohol.

His blood-alcohol content was .110, according to police. Virginia’s legal limit is .08.

CBS News was first to report the arrest. The network said Crapo posted a $1,000 bond at about 5:00 a.m. and is expected in court on January 4.

“I am deeply sorry for the actions that resulted in this circumstance,” Crapo said Sunday night in a statement released by his Capitol Hill office.

“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.”
