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.
Republican lobbyist and 20 something girlfriend was also in the car with him. It is nice to know they still \"Google each other\"! How sweet!
