Harry Reid's Brother Larry Arrested for DUI, Battery of Cop

Harry Reid Brother Arrested

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department decided to give us all a fright by releasing the mugshot of Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) 73-year-old brother, Larry. What did he do?

From the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

Sen. Harry Reid’s brother faces DUI and battery charges after a recent arrest, court records show.

Larry Reid was arrested about 12:30 p.m. Monday on U.S. Highway 95 near the edge of Boulder City city limits near the Nelson turnoff, Nevada Highway Patrol spokesman Trooper Loy Hixson said.

A trooper saw Larry Reid’s Lexus SUV in the dirt median with the engine still running, Hixson said, and arrested him on several charges, including DUI, battery of a protected person, possession of a firearm while intoxicated and three traffic violations, Boulder City Justice Court records show.

Kristen Orthman, spokeswoman for the senate minority leader’s office, confirmed that it was the senator’s brother who was arrested but said “this is a private matter.”

Details of the arrest were not immediately available since the official complaint has not been filed with the court.
