Roderick M. Ruffin, 53, was on his way to set up a camera to catch speeders when he was stopped for driving under the influence in Tempe. Motorists observed Ruffin, in a Redflex photo enforcement van, strike the curb twice and nearly hit the vehicle in front of him.
A police officer stopped the van after observing it weaving. Ruffin reportedly failed a field sobriety test and registered a blood alcohol content of .15%, nearly twice the legal limit for intoxication in Arizona. Under Arizona DUI laws, such an elevated BAC is considered an extreme DUI.
A spokesperson with Redflex said that Ruffin, who had been with the company for one year, has been let go.
