David Dolan (Colorado State Patrol | )

The Colorado State Patrol trooper arrested in his patrol car on allegations he was drinking while on the job had a blood alcohol level of .194, according to an arrest record reviewed by 9Wants to Know.

Douglas County Sheriff’s deputies arrested David Dolan, 48, after pulling him over at Platte Canyon and C-470 around 7:05 a.m. Monday, shortly after a Douglas County deputy spotted his car driving westbound on C-470 at Santa Fe.

The deputy who pulled Dolan over said he could “smell the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from inside the state patrol vehicle.”

Following his arrest, Dolan was brought to a sheriff’s office substation where he agreed to take a “walk and turn” test that helps officers determine whether someone is intoxicated.

“He was not able to keep his balance and stepped off the line two times,” the arresting officer wrote.

Dolan then chose to take a breath test and blew a .194, a level more than double the .08 legal limit.
