This Sunday, Dec. 23, 2012, booking photo provided by the Alexandria, Va., Police Department shows Idaho U.S. Sen. Mike Crapo. Crapo was arrested early Sunday morning, Dec. 23, 2012 and charged with driving under the influence in a Washington, D.C., suburb, authorities said.

— Idaho Republican Sen. Michael Crapo has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor first-offense drunken-driving charge in a Virginia court.

In exchange for his plea Friday in Alexandria, prosecutors dropped a charge of failing to obey a traffic signal.

Crapo received a $250 fine, a 12-month suspension of his driver’s license and must complete an alcohol safety program. As long as he remains on good behavior, he won’t have to serve a 180-day suspended jail sentence.

Police say Crapo was pulled over Dec. 23 for running a red light and registered a blood-alcohol level above the legal limit.

His arrest stunned colleagues and constituents alike, not only because of his squeaky-clean image but also because he’s Mormon and had said he doesn’t drink, in accordance with his church’s practices.
