That arrest sounds very straightforward, for all intents and purposes, but TMZ, who first broke the news, had other details. France endorsed Trump for president at a Georgia rally in February 2016.

The France family is racing royalty - Brian's grandfather Bill France Sr. He has been the chairman and CEO of NASCAR since 2003. France spent the night in jail and was released Monday morning after his arraignment. "We take this as a serious matter and will issue a statement after we have all of the facts".

At this time, neither France nor NASCAR appear to have commented on the arrest.

Interestingly, one local resident was quoted as saying that "it's so stupid to drive drunk in the Hamptons", because "they have police checkpoints everywhere and police are always looking for drunk drivers".
