Congressional candidate arrested on suspicion of DUI

Congressional candidate Ted Terbolizard of Cedar Ridge was arrested by Grass Valley police early this morning on suspicion of misdemeanor drunken driving.

Police stopped Terbolizard, 39, in his silver Jeep Cherokee at 1:43 a.m. on Highway 174 at Empire Street, according to police records.

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.

Terbolizard was cooperative with police, according to the police report, 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.
