RABUN COUNTY, Ga. - A watchdog group is calling upon a state representative to resign and drop his current campaign bid after a dash cam video surfaces of his arrest.
The video shows Republican state Rep. Tom Taylor of Dunwoody being pulled over for suspicious of drunk driving. Authorities said Taylor had a blood-alcohol level nearly three times over the legal limit when police stopped him in Rabun County on April 7. He was armed and had four juveniles with him as passengers.
Police video also shows Taylor telling police he had nothing to drink that day and smelled like alcohol because he drank wine the previous night. He was originally stopped for speeding.
A group called Better Georgia is sponsoring a petition calling for Taylor's resignation.
Taylor says he made a serious mistake but he doesn't plan to quit and is committed to running for re-election.
