Millcreek, Utah. Sheldon Killpack is widely known throughout Utah as the Senate Majority Leader for the State Senate. Today, the Republican made the news for being arrested for DUI.

The Utah Highway Patrol observed a vehicle driving poorly just after midnight. The UHP trooper stopped the suspicious vehicle and contacted the driver. During the contact the trooper noticed an odor of intoxicants coming from Killpack. Killpack participated in the field sobriety tests and promptly refused the portable breath test. Killpack was arrested and brought to the police station for further processing.

The trooper requested Killpack provide an evidentiary breath sample and Killpack refused that breath test as well. Because of the refusal the trooper secured a warrant for a blood draw and those results will be released in a few weeks.

Ironically, Killpack’s father was killed by a drunk driver and a close friend did not even know Killpack consumed alcohol according to Michael Waddoups, Senate President. The Senate GOP caucus is all abuzz because this might cost Killpack his leadership position. Once there is blood in the water the sharks go into frenzy.
