Truck driver shut down after multiple DUI violations

A truck driver with a California license was placed out of service by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on March 21. The man had been stopped by police in Illinois and allegedly had a blood alcohol content of .308. He had a history of alcohol-related citations including one in Massachusetts in 2007 for DUI while operating a commercial vehicle and two in Connecticut from 2012 for refusing a breath alcohol test. Those incidents resulted in license suspensions of varying lengths.
