Arrested for grand theft, drunken driving
In early Sunday morning, June 19, 2011, McGee was arrested for drunken driving and grand theft.
The Ada County Sheriff’s Office reported that McGee started drinking Saturday might in a golf course clubhouse and then began walking before coming to a Ford Excursion with a trailer hooked up. The SUV was unlocked with 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.
Sexual harassment allegations, resignation
On February 22, 2012, Republican Senate leaders announced McGee's resignation after allegations of sexual harassment against McGee came to light. The claims were made by an unidentified Senate attache. Senate President Pro Tem Brent Hill stated, “In this situation, my first priority is to ensure a safe, secure and professional work environment for Senate employees. My second priority is to protect the integrity and institution of the Idaho State Senate.”
