Hillary Clinton’s brother-in-law Roger was arrested for DUI in Southern California on last night, just in time for tomorrow’s crucial California primary.
Police spokeswoman Diana Pech says the 59-year-old was taken into custody Sunday night in the seaside city of Redondo Beach, about 20 miles south of downtown Los Angeles.
Roger Clinton remains in police custody and bail is set at $15,000. A court hearing has been set for later Monday.
The younger half-brother of former President Bill Clinton refused a blood alcohol test, according to TMZ. Roger was also arrested for DUI back in 2001 and was famously pardoned by Bill for a drug charge.
Clinton was commonly referred to by the nickname “headache” during his brother’s administration by Secret Service members who felt he was trouble.
Tuesday’s California primary is open to both registered Democratic voters and those without party affiliation.
