State Rep. David Burnell Smith knows a thing or two about DUI law. At his day job with the Smith Law Firm in Scottsdale, he specializes in DUI and DWI defense. Now, the state lawmaker reportedly has some hands-on experience with drunken driving under his belt as well.
Smith was pulled over last month after police allegedly spotted him swerving in his car. When officers asked Smith to submit to a field sobriety test, he refused and incoherently tried to claim legislative immunity, The Arizona Republic reports.
Unfortunately for Smith, the state legislature was not in session, so immunity didn't apply.
