Idaho Senator Mike Crapo was arrested Sunday morning in Virginia for driving under the influence of alcohol, Alexandria police said in a statement featuring the senator's mugshot.
Crapo, who was one of a handful of Republicans to work with Democrats to resolve the "fiscal cliff," reportedly ran a red light in Alexandria, then "underwent several field sobriety tests, which he failed."
Crapo said in a statement through spokesperson Lindsay Nothern:
I am deeply sorry for the actions that resulted in this circumstance. I made a mistake for which I apologize to my family, my Idaho constituents and any others who have put their trust in me. I accept total responsibility and will deal with whatever penalty comes my way in this matter. I will also undertake measures to ensure that this circumstance is never repeated.
