DMV: Truck driver had pot, drug-free urine sample during traffic stop

HARTFORD, Vt. -

Vermont DMV officials say they busted a tractor-trailer driver with pot, a pipe and a kit to create an artificial drug-free urine sample.

Authorities say an inspector smelled marijuana when Brendan Dolan, 51, South Burlington, was stopped as part of a routine safety check on Interstate 91 in Hartford Tuesday night. That's when they say a drug detection dog found about 1 ounce of marijuana and the other materials.

Inspectors determined Dolan was not under the influence. He was taken off the road for 24 hours and issued fines of more than $1,000.

Federal law requires commercial drivers to be subject to random drug tests.
