Arrested for grand theft, drunken driving
In early Sunday morning, June 19, 2011, McGee was arrested for drunken driving and grand theft. He is currently being held in the Ada County jail.
The Ada County Sheriff’s Office reported that McGee started night Saturday drinking 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.
McGee represents Idaho Senate District 10. District 10 includes the southern portion of Canyon County.
John is married to Hanna McGee and live in Caldwell, Idaho.
