GRASS VALLEY ” Congressional candidate Ted Terbolizard was arrested by Grass Valley police early Sunday morning on suspicion of misdemeanor drunken driving.

Terbolizard submitted to field sobriety tests and a blood test, and was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving with a blood alcohol level of more than .08, Grass Valley Police Sgt. Joe Matteoni said.

The candidate for Congress was released on his own recognizance from Wayne Brown Correctional Facility soon after he was booked early this morning, according to jail staff.

Terbolizard, who calls himself a paleo-conservative, began his campaign for the 4th Congressional District Seat last fall. His platform is based on increased personal freedom and more government restraint.
