Even Texas Congressmen aren't immune to DWI enforcement

A Republican congressman from The Woodlands, near Houston, Texas, was arrested and charged with driving under the influence in South Dakota.

A state trooper pulled over U.S. Rep. Kevin Brady, 50, Friday night for a problem with the taillights of his vehicle, Clay County Sheriff Andy Howe said.

It was homecoming weekend at the University of South Dakota, so officers were on the alert for driving violations including manning sobriety checkpoints, Howe said.

Authorities are waiting for results of a blood test to determine Brady's blood-alcohol level at the time of the arrest.

The legal limit in South Dakota is .08.
