Earlier this week, the son of Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson, who also works as a staffer for his father, was arrested at a DUI checkpoint on suspicion of drunk driving, reports the Los Angeles Times. Justin Wesson, 30, was taken into custody at about 8:15pm, which according to our post last week, was about fifteen minutes after the checkpoint started. Poor timing.
His father stated, “Drinking and driving is against the law. I’m grateful that no one was injured.” He also promised that “within the office, appropriate action will be taken.” We’re reading between the lines here, but he sounds mildly angry.
