State Patrol motorhome makes DUI traffic stop
A Washington State Patrol lieutenant who was driving a motorhome used as a mobile DUI processing center pulled over a driver for suspicion of DUI, KIRO TV reported last week.
Police said the lieutenant was driving the 36-foot motorhome back to the Bellevue State Patrol office about 3 a.m. on Aug. 9.
As he exited from eastbound Interstate 90 to 156th Street, he saw a 2001 Honda Accord driving erratically.
With no other patrol units in the area, the lieutenant made a traffic stop with the motorhome, which is equipped with emergency lights.
The driver, a 28-year-old man, was arrested for suspicion of DUI and transported to Overlake Hospital for a blood draw.
Police said the man had several types of prescription pills in his possession. Toxicology results are pending.
He was booked into the King County Jail.
