MILWAUKEE - Former state senator Randy Hopperhas been cleard of drunk driving charges.

A video captures his field sobriety test.

Hopper's attorney tells Today's TMJ4 that the truth is winning out over witnesses with a hidden agenda.

Last summer following his support of Governor Walker's collective bargaining bill, a couple called in a drunk driver who they claimed was driving eratically.

That driver turned out to be Hopper.

The couple claims they did not know it was Hopper in the vehicle.

A breath test on the scene reportedly showed a point one three, but those tests are not recognized by state courts.
