Montana's DUI Expert Admits to DUI


A man that Montana relies on to decide blood alcohol content has admitted to drunk driving and now must use an alcohol detection device to start his car.

This morning's Missoulian reports that Lynn Kurtz, a Montana State Crime Lab toxicologist, must also participate in a DUI treatment program, pay $485 in fines and fees, and can only drive for the next six months when it's absolutely necessary.

Missoula County sheriff's deputies said Kurtz blew nearly twice the BAC legal limit on June 25, when they stopped his vehicle.

The Missoulian reports that Kurtz frequently testifies in court about blood alcohol content regarding other prosecutions.
