The Lakewood Police Department has launched an internal investigation after one of its officers was charged in October with drunken driving.
The Tacoma News Tribune reports that 30-year-old Shawn Noble has pleaded not guilty in a Thurston County court to drunken driving charges.
The department says Noble, a seven-year veteran, was pulled over in his personal car by a Washington State Patrol trooper after being spotted speeding and making an improper lane change.
The trooper arrested Noble on suspicion of drunken driving. He submitted to a breath test and reportedly blew 0.099 and 0.098. The legal driving limit is 0.08.
No restrictions were placed on Noble's police duties or his driving status. His trial is set for March 1.
