FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - Former Fond du Lac State Senator Randy Hopper is in trouble with the law again., and this time it’s more than drunk driving.
The 46-year-old Repubican was arrested late Sunday night in the Township of Fond du Lac for Disorderly Conduct - Domestic Abuse, Criminal Trespass to a Dwelling and Unlawful Use of a Telephone. Hopper was also cited for drunk driving first offense.
Hopper was arrested at the home of his ex-wife.
Hopper was jailed and released Monday morning after posting a $500 cash bond.
Fond du Lac Sheriff’s Department says an investigation is ongoing and the case is being turned over to the county attorney. No further details are being released at this time.
Hopper was arrested on suspicion of OWI last fall after coming back from a Packers game. Defense attorneys were able to get him off and the charges dismissed.
Hopper claimed it was a conspiracy and public workers were out to get him because of his vote on the controversial collective bargaining law. However, law enforcement was not included in the law.
Hopper was recalled from office last summer in a wave of GOP and Democratic recalls around the state. Hopper lost to Democrat Jessica King and was ousted from office.
