SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – Democratic state Sen. Ben Hueso says he will try to prove his innocence hours after being arrested for drunken driving in the state capital.
Hueso emerged from Sacramento County Jail about 11:45 a.m. Friday and told reporters “the process isn’t over.”
He would not comment on what he was doing in the hours before his DUI arrest near midtown Sacramento at 2:39 a.m. Friday.
He wore black slacks, a red-and-white pinstriped dress shirt and black shoes as he walked from the jail to a waiting black van.
With a serious look and speaking softly, Hueso told reporters that he will “pursue my innocence.”
