Two off-duty Seattle Police officers have been charged with driving under the influence. One of the officers allegedly had a blood alcohol level approximately three times the legal limit.
The Seattle City Attorney’s Office said Officer Marie Gochnour registered blood-alcohol levels of 0.234 percent and 0.247 percent in breath tests. Officer Sean Moore’s breath sample was 0.161 and 0.149.
The legal limit is 0.08.
The officers were arrested Dec. 17, 2012. A witness called police after seeing a woman driving a car with front-end damage and seeing the woman stop the car in the middle of the street to trade places with her male passenger.
Officers arrived to find the man and woman parked several feet from the curb.
Gochnour is a patrol officer and Moore is with the K9 unit. Both have been reassigned to desk duty during the investigation.
