Far-Right GOP State Rep Busted In DUI Crash-And-Run

The Indiana Capital Chronicle reports:

Republican state Rep. Jim Lucas was arrested and held in the Jackson County Jail Wednesday morning after police said he drove while intoxicated and left the scene of a crash. Lucas crashed his vehicle on Interstate 65, just north of Seymour, around midnight, an Indiana State Police spokesperson told the Indiana Capital Chronicle. Police said he left the scene in the crashed vehicle.

Seymour police officers found Lucas’ vehicle “a short time later at a different location,” according to ISP. Lucas was then located nearby and arrested by a trooper from the state police Versailles Post. The Seymour representative is known for his Second Amendment support, as well as repeated controversial social media posts. Toxicology results were still pending Wednesday morning.
