BETO O’ROURKE HAS FIRST BRUSH WITH THE LAW ON 2020 CAMPAIGN TRAIL

Former Democratic Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke has had his first brush with the law on the 2020 campaign trail, according to reports.

CNN’s Eric Bradner shared a photo of a gray van, which he said was parked illegally by the candidate himself and was then moved by a staffer.

“Beto O’Rourke’s gray van just got a $50 parking ticket,” Bradner tweeted. “O’Rourke, who was driving, left it in a no parking area outside the Manchester Courthouse while he went across the street at Consuelo’s Taqueria. An advance staffer quickly moved the van.”View image on Twitter

O’Rourke campaigned Thursday in Manchester, NH, and according to Bradner, the parking ticket wasn’t his only departure from the norm. “Now speaking to the crowd inside, @BetoORourke starts his stump speech in Spanish — the first time I’ve seen him do that outside Texas,” Bradner tweeted.

Thursday’s parking ticket was not O’Rourke’s first brush with the law — the former Texas congressman once reportedly tried to flee the scene of a high-speed crash. (RELATED: WITNESS: Beto Tried To Flee Drunk Driving Scene After Causing High Speed Crash)

O’Rourke addressed the incident, which occurred in 1998, in a statement. “I drove drunk and was arrested for a DWI in 1998. As I’ve publicly discussed over the last 20 years, I made a serious mistake for which there is no excuse,” he explained.
