LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Former President Clinton's half brother was charged with drunken driving following his arrest over the weekend in nearby Hermosa Beach.
Roger Clinton, 44, also was charged Wednesday with disturbing the peace by challenging someone to a fight in a public place.
Clinton allegedly told a nightclub doorman that he would "kick his ass" for refusing to let him back inside, according to Hermosa Beach police spokesman Paul Wolcott.
Clinton was freed on his own recognizance pending his April 2 arraignment on the two misdemeanor counts. He could face up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine if convicted, police said.
Clinton was arrested shortly before 2:30 a.m. Saturday in Hermosa Beach, 18 miles south of Los Angeles. An officer allegedly saw his Ford Expedition hit a curb while making a right turn, stop beyond the limit at two stop signs and straddle the center dividing line.
A breath test indicated Clinton's blood-alcohol level met or exceeded the legal limit, authorities said.
