SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The California Highway Patrol says Democratic state Sen. Ben Hueso has been arrested on charges of drunken driving.

Officer Julie Powell, a spokeswoman for the CHP's Valley division, confirmed the arrest to The Associated Press on Friday but had no other details.

The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department website says the 44-year-old from San Diego was booked at 3:27 a.m. Friday after being arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.

The report says Hueso is in custody at the Sacramento County Jail, but the sheriff's department referred calls to the CHP.

Hueso is the fourth Democratic state senator to be arrested this year. The others have been suspended from the Senate.

Hueso's office referred calls to his chief of staff, Ana Molina-Rodriguez, who did not return repeated telephone and email messages.
