More Info: Robert Caldwell, who has been at The O since 1983 and is arguably the most important opinion shaper in the state, told police he’d had two glasses of wine two hours before his arrest early on the morning of May 20. He said he’d dined earlier that evening on steak and potatoes. He was arrested for driving under the influence at 12:24 a.m., after backing his pickup truck into another vehicle while trying to park near a strip club. The call to police came from a bouncer at the club who witnessed the incident.
