A former Hartford Police officer wants the results of a blood alcohol test thrown out in his drunken driving case.
Twenty-nine-year-old Kevin P. Blanchard says he was unaware from what police told him before he took the test that his license would be suspended if the results exceeded the .08 legal limit for driving.
Police say Blanchard recorded a .18 blood alcohol rate after he was involved in a car accident on New Year’s day.
Blanchard’s lawyer argued that the former police officer believed his license would be suspended only if he was convicted of drunken driving.
Blanchard no longer works for the Hartford Police Department.
