Senator Crapo, R-Idaho, won't fight DUI charge

Washington – U.S. Sen. Michael Crapo, R-Idaho, who was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, doesn't plan to fight the charges when he appears in court in January, a spokesman said Friday.

Meanwhile, results from a secondary blood alcohol test performed at the jail show the conservative three-term senator registered a higher level about an hour after being arrested than when he was first tested by the police officer who stopped him.

Police have said Crapo registered a blood alcohol level of 0.11 percent when he was pulled over early Sunday in the Washington suburb of Alexandria, Va., after running a red light. But a secondary test performed after Crapo was brought to the jailhouse -- the one that will be used in court -- registered at 0.14, nearly twice the legal limit, according to a law enforcement official with knowledge of the arrest. The official wasn't authorized to release information publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Here we go again! Remembder Patrick Kennedy on his possible DUI and DC Police didnt Arrest him. And now a republican DC Police arrested him. Double Standard when it comes to Democrats? And Get this Crapo is doing the right thing not fighting it an accept responsibilty. But Democrats will fight their charges when they commit their crimes.
