The brother-in-law of Hillary Clinton just embarrassed the family days before a pivotal primary.
Roger Clinton, 59, the half-brother of former President Bill Clinton was arrested in California, the hotly contested state that will be the main focus of Tuesday’s Democratic presidential primaries.
Clinton was arrested just after 8p.m. on Sunday night in Redondo Beach for driving under the influence, TMZ reported.
According to the celebrity news website the 59-year-old refused to have his blood alcohol tested but failed a field sobriety test.
Roger Clinton was “evaluated for driving under the influence of alcohol, which included the performance of field sobriety tests, and subsequently placed under arrest,” Lieutenant RBPD Joe Hoffman told CNN on Monday. “Clinton was transported to the Redondo Beach jail where he refused all chemical testing and was booked for suspicion of driving under the influence.”
This is far from Clinton’s first run in with the law either.
In 2001 Roger Clinton was arrested for a DUI a month after his president’s half-brother pardoned him on a drug charge.
Clinton, whose Secret Service codename was “headache” during his brother’s administration, posted bail on the latest charge and is scheduled to appear in court on September 2, according to CNN.
