Presidential brother Roger Clinton faces DUI charge

(I feel bad for him. I bet he has been pushed into AA and 12 step rehabs his whole life.)  

Roger Clinton is again in the news, and, again, not in a good way.

The brother of former president Bill Clinton — and brother-in-law of likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton — faces a DUI charge in California, the site of a major primary on Tuesday.

“Police spokeswoman Diana Pech says 59-year-old Roger Clinton was taken into custody Sunday night in the seaside city of Redondo Beach, about 20 miles south of downtown Los Angeles,” the Associated Press reported.

Roger Clinton, who spent Sunday night in jail, was released on $15,000 bond Monday.

TMZ, which broke the story, reports that Clinton refused blood alcohol testing after his arrest on Sunday evening.

Notes TMZ:

“Clinton was also arrested for DUI in 2001. That same year, President Clinton infamously pardoned his half-brother for a drug charge.”

Reported The Los Angeles Times:

His arrest was prompted by a 7:20 p.m. call from a motorist who reported a driver headed southbound on Pacific Coast Highway who was possibly drunk and was driving in “an erratic manner,” police said in a statement.

“The report was he was driving erratically, violating multiple” traffic laws, said Redondo Beach police Lt. Joe Hoffman.

  1. When I heard about this on the new today, I thought; why is this share in our news? If I got a DUI would it be in the news; NO!. I feel sorry for the guy too. No wonder he drinks. I dont care for the Clintons nor anyone else who could be president of of the US. However this guy does not deserve to be dragged into all of the politics. He may have been humiliated enough by his own family already. Dont know if he has been to AA but that would add to his misery.

    I have always criticized politics on the blog but voting in this election is like choosing between rat poisoning and arsenic.

    • HI SUE- What no Bernie Sanders love ? I dont talk politics here but I am voting tomorrow.

      Yes I feel sorry for him.
