On October 21, an Arizona State Representative was arrested, and charged with driving under the influence. The arrest took place in Scottsdale, Arizona around 7:30 p.m. after the State Rep’s vehicle was seen swaying into oncoming traffic on Pima Road.
A motorist on the same road called police after they observed the man’s vehicle swerving in the area. Police arrived in the area, and located the vehicle in question. When an officer attempted to pull over the driver, the man stopped suddenly in the middle of the roadway. Another officer was called in for backup, and the driver refused to be involved with field sobriety tests.
The man was placed in handcuffs, and then consented to a breathalyzer test. The results of the breathalyzer test indicated that his BAC was 0.137 percent, and the legal limit is 0.08 percent. The driver was then charged with driving under the influence. It is not clear at this time when his court date will take place.

Several NFL players have been cited for driving under the influence in recent months, including Marshawn Lynch, a running back for the Seattle Seahawks. Lynch was charged with DUI while he was in California on July 14.
The football player was pulled over in Oakland after witnesses claim he had been swerving in his lane on I-880. Lynch submitted to two separate breathalyzer tests, with one showing a 0.08 BAC, and the second resulting in a slightly higher level. Lynch has released an apology statement in regards to his actions.
The arraignment for his charges was moved up, and Lynch chose to enter a ‘not guilty’ plea in court last week. The main reason for the moving of the arraignment date was to have more exposure to the evidence in the case.

NFL player Nick Fairley has found himself in trouble with the law again in Alabama.

Once he was pulled over, troopers noticed he smelled of alcohol and arrested him for driving under the influence. Fairley was also cited for reckless driving, lack of insurance, and having an open container in his vehicle.
