Colo. Officers Arrested En Route to South Dakota Officers' Funeral

DENVER — Authorities say two Colorado police officers took wild, drunken ride through Wyoming on their way to a funeral in South Dakota.

KUSA-TV reports (http://bit.ly/oqkeEr) that a volunteer firefighter on Wednesday spotted a police car from Aurora, Colo., driving erratically down a Goshen County roadway. The car was reportedly speeding, using its emergency lights to pass other vehicles and trash was flying out of its window.

Goshen County Sherriff's Capt. Brian Morehouse says the two men were heading to the funeral of two police officers recently killed in South Dakota.

Morehouse says he smelled alcohol and found beer in a cooler inside the car when he stopped them.

Officer Bradly B. Bickett was cited for driving while intoxicated, careless driving and speeding. Bickett's passenger, officer Gerald Kirby, was cited for littering.
