This Sunday, Dec. 23, 2012 booking photo provided by the Alexandria, Va. Police Department shows Idaho U.S. Sen. Michael Crapo. Crapo was arrested early Sunday morning, Dec. 23, 2012 and charged with driving under the influence in a Washington, D.C., suburb, authorities said.

According to this story in The Huffington Post, Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo told police that he drank several shots of vodka prior to his arrest on suspicion of drunken driving.

The story says the arresting officer “described his (Crapo’s) eyes as ‘bloodshot and watery.’ Despite the fact that he drank vodka, the officer noted a smell of alcohol on his breath ‘which became stronger as he spoke.’”

Crapo was arrested in Alexandria, Va., on Dec. 23.

Not sure what's left to say here. I guess the relevant point is a non-drinker doesn't usually down vodka shots. Perhaps Crapo should have stuck with Miller Light or whatever Idahoans are drinking these days.
