EAST HAMPTON, NY -

Former State Treasurer Thomas Ravenel was arrested for driving drunk in East Hampton, N.Y. over the weekend.

The East Hampton Star reports that Ravenel was arrested early Monday morning after he was seen swerving in and out of lanes.

He refused a breathalyzer test.

The newspaper said Ravenel appeared in front of a judge Monday morning.  His attorney said that he plays on the East Hampton Polo team. Ravenel was given a $650 bond.

Ravenel was the state treasurer until 2007 when he was forced to resign after being charged with cocaine possession. He spent time in federal prison following that charge.

The newspaper reports that Ravenel has been eyeing a return to political office. He is currently filming a reality show for the Bravo network.

Ravenel will appear back in the East Hampton courtroom Thursday, according to the newspaper.
