It was recently reported that GOP State Senator Roy Ashburn was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI). Senator Ashburn represents the 18th district of California, which includes Kern, Tulare, Inyo, and San Bernardino counties. Police pulled Ashburn over in Sacramento around 2:00 A.M. During their investigation, it was determined that Ashburn’s blood alcohol content was 0.14 percent, 0.06 percent above the legal limit of 0.08. Ashburn was subsequently arrested for drunk driving. The state-issued car Ashburn was driving at the time of his arrest was also impounded.
Under California Vehicle Code section 23152(a) it is against the law for any person who is under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or drug to drive a vehicle. Furthermore, California Vehicle Code section 23152(b) makes it unlawful for a person who has 0.08 percent or more, by weight, of alcohol in his or her blood to drive a vehicle. Ashburn will likely be charged with a violation of both Vehicle Code sections 23152(a) and 23152(b).
