Recalled republican Senator and friend of this blog, Randy Hopper was arrested last night on a charge of OWI.

Former State Sen. Randy Hopper of Fond du Lac was arrested Sunday night on a charge of drunken driving, according to a Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department report.

Officers were called to Highway 151 near County Trunk WH about 5:30 p.m. Sunday for a report of a black Suburban “all over the road,” according to dispatch logs.

Officers stopped the vehicle and Hopper, 45, the driver, was arrested. He was held in the Fond du Lac County Jail for 12 hours and released early today, said Sgt. Renee Schuster.

According to dispatch logs, passengers in the car included Valerie Cass, 25.

The Republican Hopper lost his seat in the Wisconsin Senate this summer when he was defeated in a recall election by Democrat Jessica King of Oshkosh.

    For anyone who complains that passenger lists should not be newsworthy: Ms. Cass is a public employee and should have understood that driving under the influence is a crime. (Not to mention, she should have had the selfish that it was dangerous for herself as passenger.) Public employees should uphold the law or was she drunker?
