Democrat State Representative Galloway Arrested On DUI Charge

John Galloway, the Bucks County Democrat who represents Bristol, Falls, Morrisville and Tullytown in Harrisburg, was arrested early this morning on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol.

According to the report, Galloway wasn’t just driving a little erratically.  Police say he went right through a red light, a dangerous action, and refused to submit to the breathalyzer test.

Galloway went the Weiner route today, releasing a contrite statement calling his alleged drunk driving “a mistake.”

Why are we surprised when Democrats exhibit poor judgement? Isn’t their entire worldview one huge example of poor judgement?

He was pulled over about 2:15 a.m. on South Second Street and Washington Avenue in Harrisburg, according to Harrisburg Police Captain Annette Oates.

Galloway had been driving erratically, failed to use a turn signal and blew a red light, Oates said. The state representative then failed a sobriety test and refused to take a breathalyzer test, Oates said. Galloway, 51, of Falls, allegedly told the officer he was coming from Harrisburg’s Capitol Complex, which does not have a bar.

Galloway was then held in police custody until he was sober enough to leave, Oates said. Galloway was driving his personal car.

Oates said Galloway will be charged via summons. The DUI count will be filed under the highest possible blood-alcohol rate because he refused to take the breathalyzer test, Oates said.

That means Galloway faces a license suspension as well as between 72 hours and six months in jail. However, if he is granted entry into Dauphin County’s program for first-time, non-violent DUI offenders, Galloway may be able to avoid jail time.
