Kim Reynolds

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Iowa's court system has blocked public access to online records detailing Gov. Kim Reynolds' 2000 arrest for drunk driving, saying they inadvertently exposed her sensitive personal information.  The records contained the governor's Social Security number, driver's license number and other sensitive information that should not have been made public under court rules.

After an inquiry from The Associated Press last week, the court system removed public access to the files.

She signed a proclamation Tuesday declaring this "end distracted driving week" in Iowa.
