According to CHP, Senator Ashburn was spotted driving erratically at about 2:00am and was stopped by an officer.

He was arrested after being given a field sobriety test and was taken to Sacramento County Jail where he was given a BAC test.

After the test, he was booked and released.

CHP has also put the hush-hush on the result of Senator Ashburn’s BAC test.

You just have to wonder, will he plead no-contest or will they spin this so that he wouldn’t get a conviction?

And if he is convicted, what types of penalties will be given to him?

I am pretty sure that the punishment will be like a slap in the wrist.

Aside from being a senator, this is also only his first DUI (am I right?).

If convicted, I would expect the senator to get a fine, some very light community work, and about 3 years probation.

Oh and the token alcohol education classes.
