Republican gubernatorial candidate Mark Albertini was arrested for public intoxication following a Thursday night GOP rally in Knoxville, sheriff's officials said.
Albertini spent the night in the Knox County jail but was released early Friday, sheriff's officials told WNOX-FM and The Tennessean newspaper.
A message left with the Albertini campaign was not immediately returned Friday morning. State Republican Party officials and the sheriff's department also didn't immediately return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment.
The party event at Elizabeth Lane Farm in Knoxville was billed as an opportunity to hear Republican U.S. Senate and gubernatorial candidates speak for five minutes each about their campaign goals.
So there you go.
