In a late bid for 2011's award for Most Brazen Act of Chutzpah, a Denver cop who was kicked off the force for doing 143 mph in a 55 zone while intoxicated is appealing his dismissal on grounds that the penalty was too harsh.
Derrick Curtis Saunders was arrested on June 17, 2010, for his high-speed run caught by a Colorado State trooper in Arapahoe County. As if doing eighty-eight over the limit (at night, in a friend's car, with a passenger) wasn't bad enough, he blew a 0.089 blood-alcohol level; Colorado's legal limit is 0.08.
