Embattled Kansas lawmaker arrested for second time in one month
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A 21-year-old Kansas lawmaker has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving - his second arrest in less than a month.
Coleman was already out on bond from an Oct. 30 domestic battery arrest following a fight with his brother.
The Kansas City, Kansas, Democrat has been embroiled in controversy since before he took office after being elected in 2020.
Coleman did not immediately return phone and email messages left Monday morning by The Associated Press. His latest arrest prompted fresh calls for his resignation or removal from office.
