Se­na­tor faces DUI, had teetotaler im­age

Austin American-Statesman - - THE SECOND FRONT -

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.
