According to a news release issued by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office in Oregon, Roloff, 45, was observed by a deputy traveling west on NW West Union Road near NW Cornelius Pass Road in an unincorporated area of Washington County about midnight on June 19 of this year.  Roloff’s 2005 Chevrolet van “was failing to drive within its travel lane”, the release stated.

Roloff allegedly failed the field sobriety test and was arrested for DUII.  He was transported to the Washington County Jail where, according to deputies, he refused to take the breath test.  Roloff was cited and released for DUII, refusing the breath test, and failure to drive within the lane.

Attempts to reach Roloff by telephone an email were unsuccessful.  A phone number listed for Roloff Farms is no longer in service, and emails sent were unanswered.

Roloff and his family, wife Amy, daughter Molly, twin sons Zach and Jeremy, and youngest child Jacob, are featured on The Learning Channel’s television show that focuses on the family’s life on their 33-acre farm in Oregon.  Pegged by TLC as an “extraordinary family composed of both little and average-sized people”, the Roloff’s share how Matt, Amy, and Zach live as Little People with dwarfism living in a world of normal-sized people.
