A Republican Mormon Idaho senator was arrested for drunk driving early Sunday morning--despite the fact that he has often professed to abstain completely from alcohol in accordance with the teachings of his faith.

According to the Alexandria Police Department in Virginia, Michael Crapo, a three-term Republican senator, ran a red light at nearly 1 am on Sunday morning. When the police pulled him over, he registered a blood alcohol level of 0.11--well above the state's strict 0.8 cut off. He was taken to the Alexandria jail, where he was later released on a $1,000 bail. [My comment on the original story gives a clue as to how things really work "in the Wild West."]
