After a Domestic Violence Arrest, a 21-Year Old Kansas State Legislator has been Accused of Driving Under the Influence
Controversial Four weeks after he was arrested and charged with domestic battery, Kansas state rep. Aaron Coleman, 21, was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving over the weekend, prompting legislators to renew calls for his resignation.
A representative for Kansas City, Democratic Coleman was taken into custody at 1 a.m. Saturday by the Kansas State Highway Patrol on Interstate 70. According to Douglas County jail records, he was released later in the day after posting a $250 bond.
His family had been involved in an incident on Oct. 30 that resulted in him being charged with misdemeanor domestic battery. In Johnson County District Court on Nov. 2, he pleaded not guilty and posted bail, according to court records.
Earlier this year, Coleman was elected to the Kansas House of Representatives to represent the 37th Legislative District.
Social media comments and his abusive behavior toward female students in middle school came under scrutiny during the election. When he was running for office, he admitted that he had engaged in online bullying, blackmail, and revenge porn, and he apologized to several middle school girls for their targeted abuse. When he was 14, he was “sick and troubled,” he said.
According to the Kansas City Star, Coleman was banned from state Labor Department property last month after he was accused of beating a police officer.
