June 18, 2010
CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (AP) – A state trooper pulled over after callers said his patrol car was driving erratically on Interstate 25 has pleaded not guilty to driving under the influence of alcohol.
David Dolan also pleaded not guilty Thursday to driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 or more and prohibited use of weapons. Colorado law prohibits having a firearm while intoxicated.
Dolan is set to go to trial Sept. 28. He is free on bond and is on unpaid administrative leave from the Colorado State Patrol.
Douglas County sheriff’s deputies arrested Dolan around 7:05 a.m. March 22.
Dolan’s attorney has said Dolan suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder from years of working with the State Patrol’s fatalities unit.
