Hillary Clinton’s brother-in-law Roger Clinton busted for DUI in California two days before primary

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Updated: Monday, June 6, 2016, 10:57 AM

"Headache" has struck again — just in time for the California primary.

Hillary Clinton's troubled brother-in-law, Roger Clinton, was busted in southern California Sunday night on suspicion of DUI, just two days before the state's high-stakes primary.

Roger Clinton — who earned the Secret Service codename "Headache" for his antics during President Bill Clinton's administration —was held on $15,000 bail. He is due in court on Monday, a police spokeswoman told the Daily News.

Clinton, 59, was arrested in Redondo Beach around 8 p.m. after a civilian reported him for "erratic" driving, police said. After field sobriety tests, he was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence. But he refused all chemical testing in jail, police said.
