LOUISVILLE, Ky (WHAS11) -- The Republican Party of Kentucky has suspended its spokeswoman after she was arrested for driving under the influence in Lexington late Saturday night.

Kelsey Cooper was placed on a two week unpaid suspension, said RPK Chairman Steve Robertson, who added that Cooper would not be available for comment.

"She has learned a very valuable lesson about what she should and shouldn't do," Robertson said. "We look forward to moving forward from here." Since Cooper was hired as the RPK Communications Director earlier this year, she has been an active and vocal critic of Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes.

WKYT-TV in Lexington reports Cooper stopped her car near officers Saturday night and told them she was lost.
