Roger Clinton, brother of former President, arrested for DUI



From NBC Chicago:

The younger brother of former President Bill Clinton was arrested on suspicion on DUI Sunday in Redondo Beach, California, according to police.

Jail records show Clinton, 59, of Torrance, remained in custody Monday morning. He was released on $15,000 bond.

He was arrested after a “concerned citizen” called police Sunday night to report a possible DUI driver, according to a statement from the Redondo Beach Police Department. The caller reported the vehicle traveling south on Pacific Coast Highway in an “erratic manner.”

The driver followed the vehicle until police stopped the car near Torrance Boulevard and Prospect Avenue.

A court appearance was scheduled for Sept. 2. It was not immediately clear whether Clinton had obtained an attorney.

The arrest of Hillary Clinton’s brother-in-law came two days before the California primary in which the former secretary of state is locked in a tight race with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Roger Clinton, the former president’s half brother, was also arrested in 2001 on suspicion of DUI in Hermosa Beach.

He was pardoned in January 2001 by President Bill Clinton on charges stemming from a 1985 arrest for distribution of cocaine.
