Early in the morning of Sept. 9, Travis Morris, 32, was driving near the corner of Garden and Marsh streets in San Luis Obispo. A CHP officer discovered Morris was driving with a vehicle code violation and conducted a traffic stop.
The CHP officer then determined Morris was driving under the influence of alcohol. Morris declined a breathalyzer, instead electing to have a blood test to determine his blood alcohol level.
The officer cited Morris for driving under the influence and released him to a friend. An Individual who is arrested for DUI who has a valid driver’s license, no past DUIs and a sensitive position or condition can be picked up from the scene, according to the CHP.
Morris was placed on paid administrative leave following his arrest. San Luis Obispo police say Morris is no longer employed by the police department, as of Oct. 12.
