Senator Crapo Arrested – Charged with DUI

Senators Behaving Badly-
Republican Senator Mike Crapo from Idaho was arrested last night and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol after blowing a red light.
The AP reported:

Idaho U.S. Sen. Michael Crapo was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with driving under the influence in a Washington, D.C., suburb, authorities said.

Police in Alexandria, Va., said Sunday that the Idaho Republican was pulled over after his vehicle ran a red light. Police spokesman Jody Donaldson said Crapo failed field sobriety tests and was arrested at about 12:45 a.m. without incident. He was transported to the Alexandria jail and released on an unsecured $1,000 bond at about 5 a.m..

“There was no refusal (to take sobriety tests), no accident, no injuries,” Donaldson said. “Just a traffic stop that resulted in a DUI.”

    The DUI laws are ridiculously totalitarian in this country, and designed to generate revenue for the lawyers, police and govt officials dependent upon it.

    sounds like he’s a good man, with good intentions, not to mention fully
    owning up to his mistake, unlike several others we know of.. oh wait a
    sec, they have D’s after their names, ergo, aside from driving “forgiven”,
    they don’t/didn’t exist.. /s/

    Why do I NOT believe he killed himself? I guess it’s because
    I’ve become so suspicious of everything this government and
    especially Barry Hussein and his thugs are up to…..

    SEAL Team Four commander in Afghanistan ‘commits suicide’

    [The leader of Navy SEAL Team Four, one of the most senior
    commanders in the elite world of special operations, has died
    after apparently committing suicide in Afghanistan, it was
    reported today.

    Commander John W Price, 42, was found dead in his quarters
    with a gunshot wound on Saturday – just three days before

    Cmdr Price was based in Naval Amphibious Base Little Creek,
    Virginia, near Norfolk and had been in the military for more
    than 23 years.

    He leaves behind a wife, Stephanie and a nine-year
    -old daughter Jillian, who both live in Virginia Beach.

    The commander is originally from Pottstown, Pennsylvania.

    He commanded six platoons, two-dozen SEAL commandos and
    numerous support staff, deployed in Uruzgan Province, where
    they were conducting counter-terrorism missions and training
    police in remote parts of the country.

    SEAL Team Four is one of nine teams of special operations troops.
    The most famous of the combat groups is the classified SEAL Team
    Six, which conducted the raid that killed Osama bin Laden in May

    A U.S. military official said the death ‘appears to be the result of
    suicide.’ The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the
    death is still being investigated.]

    perhaps they threatened his kids.. 🙁

    just sayin’ who knows what these callously
    evil people
    won’t do to protect themselves..


  • jaycee

    @ #1, one dwi does NOT make a person a drunk or druggie. geesh. imo, if you start blowing in the .200 plus range then you likely have some tolerance and should maybe start analyzing your drinking habits.

  • Sasja

    bg. This was as much a suicide as Vince Foster’s.

  • jaycee

    #4, i agree. part of the reason the BAC is set so low is because its what the federal government wants, and unless states comply they wont give them any money for stuff like road maintenance. .080 is waaay too low, but it brings in plenty of money for the lawyers the state, and an entire industry built around the drunk drivers and pot users ( and believe me, the industry is huge)

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    One has to wonder just what kind of judgment guys like this one possess. He’s a public figure, which means that the spotlight will shine on him nice and white hot if he screws up, and yet he still rolls the dice.

    I don’t have a problem with the guy getting drunk, but my God, if he wants to get home, call a cab or someone for a ride home. Better yet, if he knew he was going to get bombed, just take a taxi; he most certainly could afford cab fare. Why even drive at all?

  • jt

    Driving drunk while being Republican can be hazardous to your career. DemonRat not so much. Given that 100% of DC Municipial emps vote D is there any reason to think its not open season 24 7 on all GOP Congress members?

  • AuntieMadder

    Who does Crapo think he is? Teddy Kennedy?

  • Bitter Clinger

    @Autie Madder: My thoughts exactly. If he sported a “D” rather than an “R” after his name, they would yawn even if he drove a woman off of a bridge and let her suffocate to death whilst he was busy calling his lawyer.

    MSM: Crapo DUI makes big news.
    MSM: Benghazi ignored.

  • Earthmover

    23 percent of accidents on the road are alcohol related, so 77 percent of the accidents
    involved water, pop, and coffee. Statistics don’t lie.

    How do Republicans and conservatives are the ones who are always arrested for illegal acts, when the Demogangsters do most of the crime?

    Well, the Demogangsters and the Jewish Oligarchs who run the Democratic party have moles everywhere.

    All senators who drink in bars, parties are watched and as soon as they drive out, the contacts in the police are called.

    Conservatives: Please, do not drink in public. Do not get seduced by young women. Do not take bribes. Do not beat your spouse.

    These are all traps laid by your enemies to catch you and drag in front of TV cameras to get rid of as many conservatives as possible.
