RUPERT • Minidoka County Deputy Prosecutor Alan Goodman has resigned after he was charged with drunken driving Monday night.
Goodman was pulled over in Rupert by an Idaho State Police trooper when he failed to signal before making a turn onto Eighth Street, police said.
The trooper described Goodman’s eyes as glassy and bloodshot and said there was a “strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath.”
Goodman, whose blood alcohol content was 0.17, failed field sobriety tests, police said.
He was placed into custody, given a citation for a driving under the influence and released to a sober driver.
Goodman resigned on Wednesday. He will be arraigned Feb. 4 at the magistrate court in Minidoka County.
A special prosecutor will be appointed to the case in addition to a new judge after Judge Rick Bollar disqualified himself from the case.
