— Authorities say U.S. Sen. Michael Crapo has been arrested and charged with driving under the influence in a Washington, D.C. suburb.

Police in Alexandria, Va., said Sunday that the Idaho Republican was pulled over early Sunday morning after his vehicle ran a red light. Police spokesman Jody Donaldson said Crapo failed field sobriety tests and was arrested at about 12:45 a.m. without incident. He was transported to the Alexandria jail and released on an unsecured $1,000 bond at about 5 a.m..

Donaldson said he didn’t immediately know what Crapo’s blood alcohol level was.

Crapo has a Jan. 4 court date.

A Crapo spokesman couldn’t be immediately reached for comment Sunday night.

Crapo has been in the Senate since 1998, and served for six years in the House before that.
