Sports celebrities are not alone, just after 2 a.m. early Wednesday, R-Bakersfield State Sen. Roy Ashburn was pulled over by CHP officers after they noticed his driving erratically. The Senator was at the wheel of a state Senate-issued Chevy Tahoe.
When stopped, officers noticed symptoms of alcohol intoxication. He was arrested and charged with two misdemeanors. One for driving with a blood alcohol level in excess of .08% and DUI.
Ashburn was accompanied by an unknown passenger in the vehicle. Jay Bart, of the CHP said the Senator submitted to the chemical test for blood alcohol and was reportedly very cooperative with the arresting officers.
Ashburn arrived at a Sacramento County jail sometime before 4 a.m. and was later released.
