More on arrest of state senator leader
A passer-by alerted a state trooper on Friday afternoon of a crash involving two vehicles on Interstate 65, State Trooper spokesman Steven Jarrett told the Associated Press. The passer-by pointed out one of the vehicles after it apparently drove away.
The passing vehicle was a 2008 GMC pickup truck with damage to the front side. Authorities identified Little as the driver. Little had alcohol on his breath and had an open container in the vehicle, the trooper who pulled him over reported. The senator refused to take a chemical sobriety test, according to the Associated Press.
Little was arrested on charges of driving under the influence, failure to yield to an emergency vehicle, violation of the open container law and driving with an expired license, according to the report.
