The communications director for the governor's office is facing a potentially disastrous charge after being pulled over the night of May 15. The Nevada governor's spokeswoman was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving and is currently facing charges to that effect. No trial date has yet been set.
Very few details of her arrest are available as of this report, but it has been made clear that attending officers who pulled her over were sure enough of her allegedly intoxicated state to formally charge her. It has not been clarified why she was initially pulled over or how officers reached this conclusion. No mention was made of a roadside sobriety test or blood sample being taken to confirm these allegations.
