South Valley Senator Roy Ashburn Arrested For DUI


South Valley State Senator Roy Ashburn was arrested early Wednesday morning for driving under the influence of alcohol.

The arrest occurred just after 2 a.m., when officers observed the Senator driving erratically on L Street and 15th Street in Sacramento.

According to Lt. Jay Bart, Officers pulled Ashburn over and observed signs of alcohol intoxication. They then completed an on-the-spot sobriety test.

"Officers say he was very cooperative. There were no issues or extenuating circumstances," Bart said.

He was then booked into the Sacramento County Jail, but has since been released.

The CHP is now completing its report, and will submit the findings to the Sacramento County District Attorney's office for charges.

 Ashburn represents the 18th district, which includes parts of Tulare and Kern counties. He serves Joint Rules Committee; the Joint Legislative Audit Committee and the Little Hoover Commission.

District 18 is the geographically the largest district in California.

KMPH has contacted Ashburn's office about the arrest, but they had no comment on the issue.
