Former Wisconsin Senator Arrested On Drunk Driving Charges
Wisconsin Police say they’ve cited a former state senator for drunken driving.
Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Mark Strand told the Associated Press that his agency got a cellphone call from a driver who reported former State Senator Randy Hopper was all over the road on U.S. Highway 151 late Sunday afternoon.
Strand says Hopper pulled into a grocery store parking lot, where a deputy arrested him. He was released early this morning. Strand declined to release Hopper’s blood alcohol levels to the media.
Hopper, a 45-year-old Fond du Lac Republican, lost his seat in August in one of the recall elections spurred by his support for Gov. Scott Walker’s collective bargaining law.
