Crapo won’t fight DUI case

A spokesman for Idaho U.S. Senator Michael Crapo says he won’t fight charges of drunken driving when he appears in court in January.

Police say Crapo registered a 0.11% blood on the scene after being pulled over early Sunday in Alexandra, Va.

But a law enforcement official tells The Associated Press that another test performed at the jail – the one used in court – registered at 0.14, just under the level that mandates jail time.

Virginia’s legal limit is 0.08.

The official isn’t authorized to release information publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Crapo spokesman Lindsay Nothern confirmed there had been a discrepancy in the blood alcohol tests, but said he was uncertain why they differed. (AP)
