Calif. finance head arrested on suspicion of DUI


Matosantos was arrested in downtown /*Sacramento*/ early Friday morning after /*California Highway Patrol*/ officers saw her car weaving down the street. Also, /*CHP*/ officials said Matosantos' vehicle registration was expired.

After she was pulled over, an officer observed signs of intoxication and asked Matosantos to perform a field sobriety test. The results were not immediately available.

Matosantos apparently told the officer that she had been at a downtown restaurant.

In a statement, Matosantos called her decision to get behind the wheel "reckless and irresponsible."

A spokesperson for Gov. /*Jerry Brown*/ said Matosantos offered her resignation, but the governor rejected it.

Matosantos has been state finance director since 2009.
