Sir Isaac Ford charged with drunken driving

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Sir Isaac Ford, brother of former U.S. Rep. Harold Ford Jr., was arrested early Wednesday on suspicion of drunken driving and other charges.

Ford, 32, was charged with drunken driving, public intoxication, speeding and disorderly conduct after being stopped about 4 a.m., police said.

Ford, son of former U.S. Rep. Harold Ford Sr., was combative and refused to give a thumb print, according to police reports.

Police said he did poorly on field sobriety tests and registered a 0.115 on the breath alcohol test. Under Tennessee law, 0.08 is the threshold for drunken driving.
