In what TMZ calls "impeccable timing," Bill Clinton's baby brother, Roger, was arrested Sunday in California on DUI charges—just two days before Hillary Clinton goes up against Bernie Sanders in the state primary there. Roger Clinton, 59, was busted around 8pm in Redondo Beach and is still in custody on $15,000 bail, a police rep tells the New York Daily News; he's due in court Monday. The younger Clinton (who had been nicknamed "Headache" by the Secret Service while Bill Clinton was in office) reportedly refused a BAC test, per TMZ. Roger Clinton's troubles with drugs and alcohol are well documented: This is his second DUI arrest (he also had one in 2001), and his half-bro pardoned him that same year for a drug charge right before he vacated the Oval Office.
