Tucson Cop Faces Termination for On-Duty DUI

May 23, 2012  | 

A four-year Tucson Police officer could lose her job for driving to work while severely intoxicated on Tuesday morning.

Officer Lynsey Coutts was arrested after registering a BAC of 0.235, nearly three times the legal limit. Officer Coutts was scheduled to begin her shift at 9 a.m., and called a supervisor at 9:20 a.m. to say she was driving fast on Interstate 10 and was in fear of colliding with other vehicles on the roadway.

The Civil Service Hearing relating to her termination is scheduled for May 29, reports KVOA.

So sad. Four years wasted for what? Sure hope the Officer gets help.

Hope she gets the help she needs, Still a lil sketchy as to why she called the supervisor to advise him that she may get into an accident for the speed she was travelling. It sounds like a cry for help
