Iowa troopers jail CDL driver for drinking hard liquor


This week, the Iowa State Patrol Commercial Motor Vehicle Unit (ISPCMVU) jailed a CDL driver who was caught drinking hard liquor before noon.

At 11 a.m. on Tuesday, June 4, Trooper Reisner with the Iowa State Patrol stopped a Class “A” CDL combination in northeastern Iowa.

The trooper says that the driver was “found to be consuming hard liquor and had a blood alcohol content almost FIVE TIMES the legal limit for a CDL required vehicle.”

Police say that the driver’s blood alcohol content was even higher by the time he was tested again in jail.

“We are all thankful this driver was removed from the road and jailed before a serious crash occurred!” ISPCMVU said.
