Tennessee’s secretary of state arrested

Tre Hargett, Tennessee’s Republican secretary of state, has found himself on the wrong end of the law.

The Washington Examiner reports that Hargett was arrested on Friday for driving under the influence of alcohol. 

According to the outlet, the arrest was made while Hargett was departing from the Bonnaroo Music Festival that took place on Friday evening.

Further specifics about the arrest, such as where and when it took place, have not been provided.

But, it is known that a little after midnight, Hargett was taken to the Coffee County Jail, where he was charged with driving under the influence. The jail records show that he was released a few hours later.

On Saturday, Hargett’s released a statement on the matter.

“On Friday night after leaving the Bonnaroo Music Festival, I was stopped by the Tullahoma Police Department and subsequently arrested for DUI,” Hargett wrote. “Driving Under the Influence is a serious matter, and I regret the circumstances that led to my arrest. I respect law enforcement and will trust the legal process as we move forward.”

That legal process will continue on July 14, which is when Hargett is scheduled to appear in court.

Hargett is the latest high-profile political figure to be arrested for driving under the influence in recent months. Others include the former attorney general of Pennsylvania, a congressional candidate in New Jersey, and, most notably, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
