Sen. Crapo Sentenced for DWI

He can flush that driver’s license down the toilet. Idaho Sen. Michael Crapo—a practicing Mormon—pleaded guilty Friday to drunken driving following his arrest Dec. 23 in Alexandria, Va. Crapo received a 180-day jail sentence, which was quickly suspended. His license was also suspended for a year, though he’s eligible for a restricted license, and he must pay a $250 fine and complete an alcohol program. When he was pulled over for running a red light, Crapo said he had taken “several shots of vodka” before failing a sobriety test. Since his election to the Senate in 1998, Crapo has built a reputation as values champion and social conservative.
