FORT COLLINS, Colo. — An association with a group aiming to fight drunk driving was not enough to prevent a volunteer from being arrested for doing just that this past weekend in Fort Collins.

The Rocky Mountain Collegian was the first to report that a Ram Ride volunteer had been arrested for DUI on Friday. Ram Ride is a program sponsored by Colorado State University that provides free rides to intoxicated students.

In addition to DUI, the volunteer was charged with speeding and possession of marijuana. There was also another Ram Ride volunteer in the car at the time.

The name of the volunteer has not been released as of noon Tuesday.

CSU officials told th eCollegian this is the first time a driver for the anti-DUI program has been arrested for DUI.
