Lawyer, client charged with DUI

Madison, Wisconsin--Lawyer Rick Petri can really empathize with his client.

Police arrested the lawyer for drunken driving after he went to the station to pick up a client -- who had been arrested for the same offence.

"I can't tell you how humbled I am, how embarrassed I am," said Petri, who once prosecuted drunken drivers.

Petri, 64, said he had been out last week and had a couple of drinks. He had a couple more drinks at home before going to bed. He said police called around about 2 a.m. asking him to pick up the client. Petri said the officer asked if he had been drinking, but he responded he didn't think he was intoxicated. "I was wrong," he said.
