With November fast approaching, being nabbed for a DUI is a terrible situation for anyone running for political office.

Toft was arrested on May 22nd for careless driving and a DUI. She reportedly hit a 7-year-old girl on a bike. However, no serious harm to the young cyclist has been reported.

Toft will be withdrawing from the race, although she cannot officially withdraw until after the June 5 primary.

Matthew Fox Arrested for DUI

Posted on by

Lost actor Matthew Fox was arrested for driving under the influence in Bend, Oregon on Friday.  As of now, few details regarding his arrest have been released. Fox was released from jail shortly after his arrest.

In Oregon, a DUI is often referred to DUII or driving under the influence of intoxicants. The consequences of an Oregon DUII arrest include jail or community service, expensive fines and suspension of one’s driver’s license.

It is important to note that Oregon is one of the few states where plea-bargaining is not allowed. This means that an Oregon DUI charge cannot be reduced to reckless driving or exhibition of speed. However, Oregon does have a DUI Diversion program that allows eligible individuals to avoid a conviction if they agree to fully participate in the year-long drug and alcohol rehabilitation and education program.
