Roger Clinton will be charged with driving under the influence following his June arrest after driving erratically on Pacific Coast Highway in Redondo Beach, according to the Daily Breeze.

Clinton, the brother-in-law of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, took a screening test after he was stopped by Redondo Beach police around 7:20 p.m. on June 5, but refused a Breathalyzer test at the Redondo Beach police station, according to police.

He was released on $15,000 bond shortly afterward.

Redondo Beach prosecutors will file charges next week in Torrance, according to the Breeze.


Roger Clinton is Bill Clinton’s half brother. He was arrested in 2001 on suspicion of drunk driving in Hermosa Beach, but ultimately pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving. Clinton was pardoned for a 1985 cocaine distribution offense by President Clinton before he left office.
