KOOL Question of the Day

 

*Voting is Completely Anonymous*

A Kentucky State Senator, Brandon Smith, is responding to heavy criticism he's received after being charged with DUI and saying it should be dismissed based on a law from 1891. 

Smith is referring to a section of the state constitution which bans lawmakers from being arrested except for certain offenses while the legislature is in session. 

Thursday in court, his attorney cited the 1891 rule as a reason the case should be dismissed. 

Smith was charged with DUI on the first day of the 2015 legislative session. A citation says Smith had a .088 percent blood alcohol level in a portable breath test. 

He would not discuss specifics of the case but he denies drinking that night and says the truth will eventually come out.
