DUI Arrest

Fayette County Detention Center

FRANKFORT, Ky.-- The spokeswoman for the Republican Party of Kentucky has been placed on two-weeks of unpaid suspension after being arrested over the weekend on a charge of driving under the influence.

State GOP Chairman Steve Robertson told the Lexington Herald-Leader that 23-year-old Kelsey Christine Cooper "obviously made a mistake" before being arrested Saturday in Lexington.

Cooper was hired by the Republican Party earlier this year. Fayette County jail records show Cooper was released Sunday.
