Roger Clinton — the notorious half-brother to former President Bill Clinton — was arrested over the weekend in Los Angeles for driving under the influence, according to reports.

TMZ first reported the arrest. It comes just two days before California’s primary, where Hillary Clinton hopes to lock up the Democratic nomination for president.

ABC7 in California confirmed Roger Clinton’s arrest.

According to TMZ, Roger Clinton was “arrested Sunday just after 8 PM in Redondo Beach. He was booked for driving under the influence, and remains in police custody. His bail is set at $15,000.”

“Unless he bails out before Tuesday … there goes one vote for Hillary,” TMZ noted.

Bill Clinton infamously pardoned Roger Clinton for a past cocaine-related charge in his final executive act as president before leaving the White House in 2001.
