Video of former Sen. Hopper arrest

FOND DU LAC (WKOW) -- The Fond du Lac County Sheriff's office released patrol car video of Sunday's arrest of former state senator Randy Hopper.

Hopper was arrested for an OWI after other drivers reported Hopper's car was all over the road on Highway 151.

The video shows Hopper having trouble during a field sobriety test.

Authorities say Hopper was cooperative during the tests, but on the way to jail, Hopper questioned the officer about his arrest.

That's because officers never saw Hopper behind the wheel.  Witnesses reported Hopper's trouble on the roads and officers confronted him in the parking lot of a grocery store.

The chief deputy says the arresting officer didn't need to see Hopper driving because witness statements and the clues in the field sobriety tests were enough to take Hopper into custody.
