COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) A Colorado Springs policeman is being investigated for felony tampering after he allegedly stole a blood sample taken from him after a suspected DUI.
Colorado Springs police say that veteran Officer David Rosenoff was involved in a car accident in his personal vehicle Sunday at about 1 p.m.
Investigators suspected Rosenoff was driving while intoxicated. He was taken to the hospital for a blood draw to determine his blood-alcohol content.
Rosenoff was taken home, after which the arresting officer noticed Rosenoff's blood sample was missing from his car.
After a subsequent investigation, Rosenoff was arrested Monday on charges of tampering with evidence, a felony.
Rosenoff has been placed on administrative leave by the department.
