    Beer magnate and former Republican U.S. Senate candidate Pete Coors was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and is due to appear in court on the charges next Thursday.
    A Colorado State Patrol trooper pulled Coors over after he saw him run a stop sign around the corner from his home in Golden about 11:25 p.m. on May 28.
    Coors stopped in his driveway and consented to take a Breathalyzer test. He registered a .088, which is slightly above the .08 legal blood-alcohol limit in Colorado.
    He was driving a 2004 green Jaguar, court records show.
    Coors spokeswoman Kabira Hatland said the 59-year-old was coming home from a friend's wedding in Denver. "I made a mistake by driving myself home after a friend's wedding celebration," Coors said in a written statement, shortly after news of his arrest was first reported on "I should have planned ahead for a ride. For years I've advocated the responsible use of our Company's products. That's still my message, and our Company's message, and it's the right message. I am sorry that I didn't follow it myself." Coors was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and registering a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit. He was also cited for running the stop sign.

    That is pretty funny. I remember a story a few years back where a woman got caught for DUI and she was head of the big anti-DUI group locally. Doh.

    Wouldn't it have been funny if they would have caught him drinking a Bud, Miller, Sam Adams or something other than Coors?
