Georgia state Rep. Tom Taylor was arrested last week and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol in Rabun County.
Taylor, 54, a Dunwoody Republican, had a blood-alcohol content of .225, nearly three times the legal limit of .08, according to a Clayton Police Department incident report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution…
Taylor was stopped at 2:45 p.m. on April 7 for driving 72 mph in a 45 mph zone with four juveniles in his SUV, according to the police report. Officer Michael Bennett reported that Taylor exited his vehicle and was legally carrying a gun on his hip. Bennett said Taylor had “an overwhelming odor of alcohol,” but denied that he had anything to drink.
