Wisconsin lawmaker arrested for drunken driving

A police report says a Wisconsin lawmaker arrested for drunken driving told an officer he had "five or six beers."

Greenfield police on Oct. 31 released the dash cam video and the report about Rep. Josh Zepnick. The Milwaukee Democrat was stopped around 8:20 p.m. on Oct. 29.

The Journal Sentinel reports the video shows Zepnick's car being pulled over after an officer saw him go through a red light. The video then shows Zepnick undergoing field sobriety tests, which police say he failed.

According to the police report, Zepnick refused to take a breath test. 

Zepnick's sister, Jamie Lynn Zepnick, was struck and killed by a drunken driver while riding her bicycle in 1990.

Zepnick on Oct. 30 apologized for his deciding to drive under the influence. His attorney had no comment on Oct. 31.
