US Senator Arrested For Drunk Driving : Can This Happen In Nigeria? by TRUTHTELA: 4:40am On Dec 24, 2012
Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) issued a public apology after being arrested for drunken driving in Alexandria, Va., early Sunday morning.
Jody Donaldson, a spokesperson for the Alexandria Police Department, said in an e-mail that Crapo was arrested at 12:45 a.m. Sunday. An Alexandria police officer noticed Crapo’s vehicle run through a red traffic light, and after the vehicle was stopped, the officer conducted field sobriety tests, which Crapo failed, Donaldson said. Crapo was arrested for driving under the influence, and taken into custody without incident, Donaldson said.

In a statement, Crapo apologized for his actions.
“I am deeply sorry for the actions that resulted in this circumstance,” Crapo said. “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.”
Police said they did not have Crapo’s blood-alcohol content available.
He was released on $1,000 bond, and has a court date scheduled for Jan. 4.
The 61-year-old Republican is serving his third term in the U.S. Senate. Crapo is Mormon, and has said publicly that he abstains from alcohol.

The senator will first ask: Do you know who I am? Thereafter, he will slap the policeman and then his countless aides will give the policeman the beating of his life. Then the next day that policeman will join the unemployment workforce cheesy

The answer should be yes but our politicians think they are gods or above the law. Someone will be paid off and the issue will never have happened.

When the policeman no blind,our leaders are power drunk,and see themselves as being above the law.
You won't blame them,most of them are educated illiterate.
Not peculiar to Nigeria alone sha,but most Africa countries. Backward continent.

Try this in Nigeria... not only will you lose your job, seriously; you could lose your life instantly, right there and the fatal shot could pulled by the senator himself.
Re: US Senator Arrested For Drunk Driving : Can This Happen In Nigeria? by Billyonaire: 9:08am On Dec 24, 2012
Its not possible in Nigeria. They purposeful keep the Police in a beggerly state so they can not be intimidated. I wonder if the American Senator did not move around with 3 Security Vans and 15 Police PAs to protect the Senator of the Federal Republic.

Paid off? It wont even get that far. They use national assembly number plates hence the police wont go near them.

It can never happen here even at the local level. Nigeria system is bad and we need a true leader who can stand by what is deem right and has influence to control. Not a weak one who has no influence with baggages of corruption that devalue his prestige.
