Not only was a state assemblyman arrested for driving under the influence last week, but he was caught doing so in a state-owned vehicle. News sources say that until the DUI investigation has been completed, the assemblyman has voluntarily relinquished his right to drive the vehicle. According to the Sacramento Police Department, Assemblyman Roger Hernandez was observed weaving across several lanes of traffic last week while failing to use a turn signal. When he finally pulled over into a parking lot, the officer following him witnessed several more indications of drunken behavior. Based on the results of the field sobriety tests administered in the parking lot, the officer felt that he had just cause to take Rep. Hernandez into custody.
At the jail, a blood exam was administered to further determine his sobriety. Once the results of the blood work are returned, the case could be moved to the District Attorney's Office to be prosecuted by the authorities. Were you recently arrested for DUI?
