via the Washington Post;

Rep. Vito J. Fossella (R-N.Y.) was arrested overnight in Alexandria and charged with driving while intoxicated, court records showed today.

Fossella is scheduled to appear in Alexandria General District Court on May 12 for an advisement hearing, the records said.

via NBC's Virginia affiliate WAVY, NYC congressman Fossella charged with DWI outside D.C.;

Police spokesman Lieutenant Ray Hazel says Vito Fossella, who represents Staten Island and parts of Brooklyn, was arrested some time between midnight and 2 a.m.

Hazel says Fossella was charged with driving while intoxicated as a first offense, which under Virginia law requires a blood-alcohol level of 0.08% or higher. He says he can't provide further details on the arrest, including Fossella's exact blood-alcohol level or where in the city he was arrested.

NY-13: Republican Rep. Vito Fossella was arrested for DUI last night (hat tip to ortcutt). This can't be good for him, not in a district with a slight Democratic lean, not when the DCCC has already targeted him for defeat.

I wish this had happened a year ago..it would've been the nail to finish him off. As it stands, I still dont feel confident with the choices we democrats have. Maybe someone will come out of the woodwork.
