Lakewood police officer investigated in DUI

The Associated Press

LAKEWOOD, Pierce County — The Lakewood Police Department has launched an internal investigation after one of its officers was charged in October with drunken driving.

The Tacoma News Tribune reports Tuesday that 30-year-old Shawn Noble has pleaded not guilty in a Thurston County court to drunken driving charges.

The department says Noble, a seven-year veteran, was pulled over his personal car by a Washington State Patrol trooper after being spotted speeding and making an improper lane change.

The trooper arrested Noble on suspicion of drunken driving. He submitted to a breath test and reportedly blew 0.099 and 0.098. The legal driving limit is 0.08.

No restrictions were placed on Noble’s police duties or his driving status.
