    They do, but there was a mixup that caused the reporting officer to miss the court date. Please see our full Harbin coverage here.

    I thought that they take your license when you are arrested for DUI. How can a State Rep keep his license until the next his election has past and he was voted by in office. Why has he not been tied before now. If he can get away with this then ever citizens should be able to do the samething. Keep their license until there court date is finish. What is the government coming too. There are different standard for people who uphold the law. Please let me know how he is doing what he is doing so I can follow in his foot step. Thank you very much and God Bless you.

    when is Ben Harbin going to court to address his DUI? It has been over a year now and if it had been you or I we would have been found guilty and had to pay our consequences.
