Default Drunk Lake Patrol Arrested

TAHLEQUAH -- An on-duty Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper was charged Monday with operating a Department of Public Safety vessel and carrying a firearm while intoxicated on Fort Gibson Lake, records show.

He registered a blood-alcohol content of 0.14 after being detained from his Lake Patrol assignment Sunday at Paradise Cove in Cherokee County, First Assistant District Attorney Monte Strout said.

The legal limit for operating a vessel is 0.10, two-hundredths higher than the standard for driving an automobile, Strout said.

Dancer was detained and then released Sunday following an OHP administrative investigation.

Prosecutors filed misdemeanor counts Monday of operating a vessel under the influence of alcohol and possessing a firearm while under the influence of alcohol, records show.

The trooper, whose bail has been set at $5,000, is expected to surrender to the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office, Strout said.

A 15-year member of the OHP, Dancer has been placed on paid administrative leave, OHP Lt. Brandon Kopepasah said.

I thought some of you that have been stopped by the patrol for alcohol might like to see this.

This was in the Tulsa World this morning and they would not go into details other than saying he smelled of booze and had blood shot eyes. My guess is that he was probably hitting on some of the young hotties and got turned in.

Chalk one up for fair play...at least the good 'ole boy system didn't let him slide....then again, he may have been so oviously intoxicated and/or obnoxious, that they had no choice. My guess is he wasn't the favorite guy on the force before this...
