CA Assemblyman Arrested on Suspicion of DUI

CONCORD, Calif. (AP) – Authorities say California Assemblyman Roger Hernandez was arrested this week for investigation of drunken driving in the city of Concord. Concord Police Chief Guy Swanger tells the Los Angeles Times Hernandez was pulled over about 2 a.m. Tuesday after officers saw his car weaving between lanes. Swanger says Hernandez refused to take a breathalyzer test at the scene and was arrested for investigation of driving under the influence. He was booked into Contra Costa County jail and released after taking a blood test. Swanger says the results will not be available for up to several weeks. Hernandez told the Sacramento Bee he had “a couple” of drinks at a late dinner with a friend but was sober when he was stopped. He says the officer improperly stopped him.
