BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- U.S. Sen. Michael Crapo is facing a hearing Friday in a Virginia court on a drunken driving charge.

The Idaho Republican has said he doesn't plan to contest the allegations.

Police have said Crapo initially registered a blood alcohol level of 0.11 percent when he was pulled over Dec. 23 in the Washington suburb of Alexandria, Va. after running a red light. Police said a secondary test performed at the jail registered at 0.14.

Virigina's strict drunken driving laws could result in Crapo being ordered to attend an alcohol awareness class, installing an ignition interlock device in his car and losing his driver's license for one year.
