The Bee previously posted a shortened version of this 15-minute video of state Sen. Ben Hueso’s arrest on Aug. 22, 2014 on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Dialogue between the San Diego Democrat and the CHP officer who arrested him begins at the 8:47 mark. Click here for a partial transcript of their discussion about whether Hueso will submit to a blood-alcohol test, and his eventual arrest.

In December, Hueso accepted a sentence of three years probation, an $1,100 fine and a six-week reckless-driving program for a lesser “wet reckless” charge.
