Pete Coors Pleads Guilty to DUI

By Guest Attorney

Beer magnate and former candidate for the US Senate Pete Coors had his driver’s license suspended for three months from the date of his arrest for DUI when he pled guilty to driving while alcohol impaired, a lesser version of DUI. Coors was arrested in May with a breathalyzer reading of 0.088 BAC. Coors was also ordered to pay a $200 fine, $495 in court costs, and attend Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) courses at his expense.

It is typical in Colorado to allow a drunk driver to plead from DUI to DWAI when he has no previous arrests for DUI and does not have an excessive BAC.
