Air traffic controller caught drunk on the job

Earlier this month, officials from the Federal Aviation Administration began investigating an air traffic controller that is suspected to have been drunk while on the job in Longmont, Colorado.

A random blood alcohol content test taken by the air traffic controller revealed him to have a BAC that was .02 percent higher than is allowed.  The FAA says that they routinely take random BAC tests and that they had no reason to suspect the air traffic controller was drunk.  Air traffic controllers that test between a .02 percent and a .039 percent blood alcohol content are cited by the FAA and enter rehabilitation or counseling programs.

The test was taken while the air traffic controller was on duty at the Denver Air Route Traffic Control Center, around 25 miles north of Denver.
