Alcohol “Disability” and Former Officer DUI Lawsuit

Seeking help for other officers that experience a debilitating level of alcohol dependence, a former law enforcement professional is suing an Oregon city over his DUI-related firing.  According to KPopStarz,  a former police officer was cited for DUI after crashing his patrol car into a ditch, an accident directly related to an evening of drinking. This citation led to the arrest of the officer, who claims his alcoholism is not only a direct result of his police work, but is also a protected disability.
