Nevada Sen. Harry Reid’s 73-year-old brother was arrested Monday and charged with driving drunk and hitting a police officer.

Larry Reid was arrested for DUI about 12:40 p.m. between Boulder City and Searchlight, according to Nevada Highway Patrol, a local ABC affiliate reported.

Mr. Reid was also charged with battery of a police officer, driving across a median, resisting arrest, not wearing a seat belt and possession of a gun while under the influence of alcohol, the station reported.
