State politician charged with DWI

Wisconsin’s former state senator Randy Hopper, who recently lost his seat to Democrat Jessica King, was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol Sunday evening. While his exact blood alcohol content was not released, it was confirmed to be over the legal limit of 0.08.

Police pulled over the man after a witnessed called 911 concerned about a black Suburban driving erratically down Highway 151 in Peebles. Hopper refused to breathe into a breathalyzer and subsequently failed field sobriety tests. At the Fond du Lac County Jail, he also failed a preliminary breath test.

Hopper was released early Monday morning and could potentially lose his license or pay a fine for his first drunk driving offense.
