INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A state legislator from Indianapolis was arrested over the weekend on drunken driving and other charges.
An Indianapolis police report says Democratic Rep. Dan Forestal was arrested after officers were called late Saturday about a man impersonating a police officer. Forestal was booked into jail on preliminary charges of impersonating a public servant, driving while intoxicated and resisting law enforcement.
The 36-year-old Forestal is an Indianapolis firefighter who was first elected to the Indiana House in 2012.
Prosecutors haven’t yet filed formal charges against Forestal, who was released from jail Sunday on $150 bond.
Defense attorney Jim Voyles and a House Democratic spokesman declined to comment on the arrest.
