Last month had its ups and its downs for the Clinton family.

Chelsea Clinton and her husband welcomed a baby boy...but there was also Hillary Clinton's ongoing headache over those emails and ET has confirmed that Bill's half-brother, Roger, was jailed for a DUI in Southern California.

Roger was charged with driving under the influence and above the legal limit, the Redondo Beach city attorney told ET. He refused to submit to a chemical test, which resulted in a mandatory 48 hour county jail requirement.

This isn't the first run-in with the law for the father of two and former actor -- Roger once guest-starred on The Nanny and Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.

Before he left office in 2001, then-President Bill Clinton pardoned his half-brother for a cocaine-related offence, the BBC reports. Roger served more than a year in prison for possession in 1985 and, with the pardon, it was cleaned from his criminal record.

A month later, he was popped for driving under the influence, but those charges were dropped and he pled guilty to reckless driving and was put on probation.

Roger will be arraigned on Sept. 2.
