David Dolan, Colorado State Patrolman busted for .194 blood alcohol content, gets jailtime

Back in March, TV viewers across the state saw Colorado State Patrolman David Dolan get pulled over by Douglas County officers for alleged drunk driving -- likely the first time a CSP member was busted for DUI on the job. Now, Dolan has reportedly been sentenced to ten days in jail and eighteen months probation for this offense plus a weapons charge.

No doubt Dolan had been imbibing to excess: His blood-alcohol content was measured at .194. According to Channel 7, his attorney says Dolan suffers from PTSD due to years of service on the state patrol's fatality unit.
