Kansas House candidate cited for open container

BURLINGTON, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas House of Representatives candidate has been arrested for having an open container of alcohol in his vehicle.

Burlington Police Chief Doug Jones says Jeff Freeman, a Republican running against incumbent state Rep. Peggy Mast of Emporia in the Aug. 5 primary, was booked into the Coffey County jail Sunday on suspicion of having an open container in his car.

Jones says Freeman was also cited for not having proof of insurance. He says Freeman passed a field sobriety test and posted bond of about $350. Freeman's scheduled for an Aug. 14 court appearance.

The Emporia Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/W8iQYi ) Freeman is on probation in Fairfax County, Virginia, after pleading guilty in 2013 to disorderly conduct.

Freeman didn't return calls seeking comment Tuesday. It's unclear if he has a lawyer.
