Fond du Lac Chief Deputy Mark Strand told TPM that Hopper was pulled over by police into a supermarket parking lot. He was administered a field sobriety test, but refused to take a breathalyzer test.
In addition to the backlash against Walker's policies, Hopper simultaneously faced his own political headaches due to a messy divorce -- and claims by his estranged wife that he "now lives mostly in Madison" after having an affair with a younger woman.
This controversy may very well have made the difference in Hopper's 51%-49% defeat by Democrat Jessica King.
Notably, the younger woman in question is Republican aide Valerie Cass, who is listed in this report as the passenger in Hopper's car.
