ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — Authorities say U.S. Sen. Michael Crapo (KRAY’-poh) has been arrested and charged with driving under the influence in suburban Washington, D.C. Police in Alexandria, Va., said Sunday that the Idaho Republican was pulled over early Sunday morning after his vehicle ran a red light.

Police spokesman Jody Donaldson said Crapo failed field sobriety tests and was arrested at about 12:45 a.m. He was transported to the Alexandria jail and released on an unsecured $1,000 bond about four hours later

Donaldson said he didn’t immediately know what Crapo’s blood alcohol level was. Crapo has a Jan. 4 court date. The senator issued a statement late Sunday saying he was “deeply sorry” for his actions and would deal with whatever penalty comes his way.

A Mormon, Crapo has been in the Senate since 1998, and served for six years in the House before that.
