Martin Garrick, the Republican assemblyman representing North County, was arrested Wednesday evening at 9:36 PM in Sacramento, after reportedly driving 45 MPH in a 25 MPH zone and running a stop sign, according to a story in the San Francisco Chronicle.
He ran a stop sign at O Street and did not slow when the officers tried to stop him, driving into the Capitol parking garage, Kennedy said. . . The officers caught up with Garrick, who was now parked, Kennedy said. He showed signs of being intoxicated and agreed to take a field sobriety test and then a chemical test, Kennedy said. He was cited and released, Kennedy said.
In a statement released on his behalf he said that this was a “stark wake-up call” and he reportedly has promised never to drink and drive again.
Geez, Mr. Garrick, what is this high school? Are you going to write that on the blackboard 500 times? Nice to know we’re represented by people with such good judgement, isn’t it?
