Senator faces DUI, had teetotaler image
U.S. Sen. Mike Crapo’s arrest early Sunday in a Washington, D.C., suburb on suspicion of drunken driving suggests a private life that departed from his public persona as a teetotaling member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Colleagues said Monday they were taken aback by word of the Idaho Republican’s arrest. The threeterm senator is accused of registering a 0.11 percent blood-alcohol level on a breath test after running a red light in Alexandria, Va., where the legal limit is 0.08. Crapo faces a court date Jan. 4.
