KOOL Question of the Day

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.
