    A Winooski police officer is accused of driving drunk, at more than four times the legal limit, on Interstate 89 during rush hour.
    State Police say they received a call Friday afternoon about a red truck swerving all over the northbound lane. It then reportedly stopped in the middle of the highway before ending up in the median.
    When police arrived, they found 40 year old Jason Nokes unresponsive in the truck. He was transported to the hospital.
    Police say Nokes' blood alcohol contents was .332. He was processed for suspicion of drunk driving.
    Nokes is a corporal with the Winooski Police Department and was off duty at the time. He is a 15 year veteran with the force. Chief Steve McQueen has placed Nokes on paid sick leave.
