Arizona Representative David Cook told an officer he was making a “mistake” during a DUI stop on Wednesday night, after handing over his House ID card instead of his driver’s license.
Cook, a Republican from Globe who was reelected to a two-year term in November, was arrested and cited for extreme DUI.
“You’re making a mistake,” Cook told an Arizona Department of Public Safety trooper, a DPS report states. Cook later told an officer, “you’ll get yours,” the report states.
Cook was pulled over while driving his white Ford pickup truck eastbound on State Route 202 near McDowell Road around 11:30 p.m., after an officer observed him drifting out of his lane and into the shoulder.
