Congressman Kevin Brady of the 8th District of Texas has apparently been arrested on a DUI charge in South Dakota. If convicted, Brady could spend up to a year in jail.
U.S. Rep. Kevin Brady was arrested and charged with driving under the influence while in South Dakota, according to a published report.

The Texas Republican was pulled over by a state trooper Friday night for a problem with the tail lights of his vehicle, The Dallas Morning News reported.

Authorities were waiting for results of a blood test to determine Brady's blood-alcohol level at the time of the arrest. The legal limit in South Dakota is 0.08.

If convicted of the misdemeanor charge, Brady faces a fine up to $1,000 and a year in jail, Clay County Sheriff Andy Howe said.

It's good to see that SD police weren't lenient on him because he's a Congressman. Politicians are the worst for admitting to their own mistakes.

We'll have to follow this one to see if anything actually comes of it.

People get arrested for DUI everyday in every country. Doesn't seem quite ATSNN really, maybe more suitable in one of the other forums?

If he is found to have been over the limit then he'll be banned like everyone else.

I'd say that whenever a high level politician like this gets caught breaking the law that its ATSNN worthy. This is an interesting story, wonder how much he will try to downplay this if he runs for re-election later, whether the party will support him in such an effort, if there'll be any follow up or if it'll all just get brushed under the proverbial rug, etc.

If he doesn't do at least 30 days of that possible year in jail, then that's the real crime.

People do the whole year all the time in this country and worse. Especially the poor. Yet, everyone still thinks it's still a slap on the wrist and keep calling for more punishment.

We need more congressmen ensared in the same trap entrapping more and more Americans.
