A volunteer for a group aiming to fight drunk driving was arrested for doing just that.
Ram Ride, a program sponsored by Colorado State University, provides free rides to students who’ve had too much to drink.
A volunteer Ram Ride driver, Karl Dalwin Colville La Borde, 19, was with another volunteer in the car at the time they were pulled over by police for going 39 mph in a 30 mph zone.
Police detected an odor of burned marijuana on La Borde, who later admitted to smoking ‘a bowl’ 20 minutes prior to driving while waiting for passengers.
In addition to DUI, the volunteer was charged with speeding and possession of marijuana.
La Borde and the other volunteer are banned from serving as Ram Ride volunteers. The organization is considering policy changes in light of the incident.
