Air traffic controller could have been drunk on job

LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) - The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating allegations that a Colorado air traffic controller was drunk while controlling live air traffic.

According to KMGH-TV, officials tested a veteran air traffic controller for alcohol earlier this month while he was on duty and his blood alcohol content was twice the legal limit.

The FAA says the controller is no longer handling air traffic.
