Beer Truck Driver Arrested For DWI After Flipping Rig

A contract beer truck driver transporting Coors Beer has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after his rig flipped over in suburban Wheat Ridge, Colorado.

Police say 56-year-old Bobby Dodge of Texas was eastbound on Colorado 58 about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday when he took an exit ramp for eastbound Interstate 70.

Authorities say Dodge took the ramp too fast and the truck overturned.

Wheat Ridge police spokeswoman Lisa Stigall says the beer, which had recently been picked up in Golden, remained enclosed inside the truck's trailer. Authorities had to remove the entire load in order for the trailer to be set upright.

The wreckage blocked the ramp until early Wednesday morning.

No injuries were reported. Stigall says Dodge was booked and taken to a detoxification facility.
