A former district attorney was arrested on March 30 for allegedly driving while under the influence.

At 3:45 a.m., an El Dorado County Deputy Sheriff stopped a black Hyundai Sonata for impeding traffic on El Dorado Hills Boulevard south of Highway 50 in El Dorado Hills, a press release from the California Highway Patrol states. When the deputy made contact with the driver, he allegedly detected a strong smell of alcohol from within the vehicle, and CHP was requested to make a DUI evaluation.

The deputy was able to identify the driver as Gary Lacy, 59, El Dorado County district attorney from 1994 to 2006, who reportedly exhibited symptoms of intoxication. Lacy also allegedly admitted to drinking prior to driving and the former DA subsequently failed the field sobriety tests.

Lacy was arrested on charges related to DUI. He was not booked into the county jail. Officer Quinn Cuthbertson confirmed that Lacy’s blood alcohol level was at least .08.

According to the Sheriff’s Department daily logs, Lacy had been impeding traffic while being yelled at by a female; Cuthbertson believed her to be a passenger in the car. The female, Kimberly Alander-Hunt, 27, was arrested on suspicion of public intoxication and later released.
