Fmr. House Speaker DeRoche Arrested

deroche craig Fmr. House Speaker DeRoche ArrestedJust weeks after being sentenced to probation on a drunk driving charge, former state House Speaker Craig DeRoche has been arrested again.According to reports, DeRoche’s wife called police — saying she was out-of-town and concerned for her three children because DeRoche sounded intoxicated on the phone.

When DeRoche saw police lights approaching, he apparently ran into a wooded area.

Then, according to a relative, DeRoche got a loaded handgun from a safe in his home — and walked into one of his children’s bedrooms. When police caught up with him, he had put the gun down and was holding one of his children.

DeRoche was charged with possessing a gun while intoxicated, and is due back in court next week.
