Police in Alexandria, Va., said Sunday that the Idaho Republican was pulled over after his vehicle ran a red light. Police spokesman Jody Donaldson said Crapo failed field sobriety tests and was arrested at about 12:45 a.m. He was transported to the Alexandria jail and released on an unsecured $1,000 bond at about 5 a.m....
Police said Crapo, who was alone in his vehicle, registered a blood alcohol content of .110. The legal limit in Virginia, which has strict drunken driving laws, is .08.

Crapo had told The Associated Press in past interviews that he abstains from drinking alcohol.
Crapo, who was elected in 1998 and is in his third Senate term, is expected to take over the top Republican spot next year on the Senate Banking Committee. He also serves on the Senate’s budget and finance panels and has been active on environmental and health issues.
I know this won’t come off sounding quite right....but what an easy thing to ‘create.’
I mean with the way the world is today about so many things that are ‘bad’ for you from smoking to yes...even drinking and driving.
What is to stop a unionized government employee from faking the results of the field sobriety test? Democrats know that conservatives can’t stand having these kinds of irresponsible “drunks, womanizers, etc.” within the ranks. Republicans must be held as ‘holier than thou’ types, right?
He held himself up as a “holier than thou” type.
That’s the problem.
“a blood alcohol limit of .1100000?”
I meant to say;
“print that he had a blood level CONTENT of .1100000.”
I know Kennedy was a drunk and was people covered for him for years, but Kennedy's piss poor behavior is not an excuse for another senator to act like an ass.
My wife and kids drive. If you're drunk, don't drive and put my family at risk.
Shocking I tell you! Just Shocking!
I quit drinking and solved the problem for good.
Poor dude couldn’t stop for a cup of coffee; against the WOW.
Don’t worry. Most people don’t understand decimals. They don’t know if there is a difference between .11 and .110 or .1100.
I’ve seen people in graduate school who can’t tell you which is larger, .170 or .71. Many of them explain their answers this way: “Everything works backwards to the right of the decimal.”
I am going to give him a small credit for two things:
One, he did not refuse the sobriety tests
Two, he didn’t claim that he could not be arrested because he was on his was to Congress.
Wasn’t that the Larry Craig seat? Do devils lurk there or what?
How do you fail a field sobriety test at .110? They must have told him to recite the Greek alphabet backward.
He's still burning off the alchohol in hell.
.11 is pretty lame - a democRAT could do much better.
GREAT flowchart!!! Merry, Happy to you and yours.
I think the Devil made sure Ted Kennedy got down there because they figured he could extend the thermal energy resources of Hell in four ways:
1.) Hot gas from the mouth
2.) Methane from the rear
3.) Alcohol in the blood
4.) Blubber for rendering
They make you take a breath test during the field tests these days. So you can do okay on the physical tests and fail the breath test.
Thanks, NonValueAdded...and best to you and yours! (Flowchart is so true, isn’t it?)
Burning it off, hell. Satan's using Ted as a fuel source.
