Former Assembly member arrested for DUI

Debbie White picked up for drunken driving charge Monday

A former Assembly member was arrested this week for driving under the influence, according to the Juneau Police Department.

Debbie Ann White, 54, was arrested at 7:10 p.m. Monday in the 9000 block of Egan Drive, according to JPD’s daily bulletin. Her breath-alcohol content was measured at 0.161 percent, according to the bulletin, and she was taken to Lemon Creek Correctional Center while the vehicle she was driving was impounded.

White, who served on the Assembly from 2014-2017, declined to comment when she was reached via text message Wednesday. She declined to confirm whether the person in the report was her, but the name and birth date in electronic court records match the name on her Alaska Public Offices Commission filings and match the birthday on her Facebook profile.
