Former Senator John McGee
Grand Theft Auto, Drunk Driving, and Sexual Harrasment
Grand Theft Auto
On Sunday, June 19, 2011, McGee was arrested for drunken driving and grand theft.
The County Sheriff’s Office reported that McGee started drinking Saturday night in a golf course clubhouse and then began walking before coming to an unlocked Ford Excursion with a trailer hooked up and the keys inside. McGee got inside and drove away.
At some point in the night, McGee unsuccessfully tried to turn the vehicle and trailer around, jack-knifing the two. McGee eventually fell asleep in the Excursion. Two witnesses in a nearby house were watching all of the events transpire and called police. When police arrived McGee told authorities he was on his way to Jackpot.
He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor DUI in July.
