A lost vehicle license plate apparently led Colorado State Patrol officials to arrest a 16-year-old boy on suspicion of DUI in Colorado the morning of February 11, according to this news report in The Daily Sentinel. Colorado State Patrol officials earlier that morning had responded to a call regarding a hit-and-run accident in which a vehicle had crashed into a highway information sign at 3219 Interstate 70 Business Loop.
Officers found the license plate lying at the intersection. Local law enforcement officials traced the plate and located the vehicle parked at its registered residence. The vehicle looked as if it had been in a car accident and state troopers found the 16-year-old boy asleep behind the wheel, the article stated.
