AZ Legislature Immune From Arrests
Yikes! Apparently it’s been the law in Arizona for decades.
In 1988, Gov. Jan Brewer, then a state senator, was involved in an alcohol-related car crash.
Department of Public Safety officers, after learning that Brewer was in the legislature, told her that she had immunity from arrest. No charges were filed in the case. Brewer said at the time she had been drinking but was not impaired.
