New arrest details released in Colt Brennan DUI case

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - In newly released documents regarding his DUI arrest, police say Colt Brennan's eyes were bloodshot and that he clearly smelled of alcohol.

Brennan's blood alcohol level content was more than double the legal limit at 0.17 when he was arrested in Kailua last Wednesday.

Documents from the Driver's License Revocation Office say Brennan was slightly slurring and unsteady on his feet when officers took him into custody.

"They ask you do to a performance test. Leg raise for 30 seconds. Go up and down here. Turn around here and the pope can't pass that.  It's a subjective test and you flunk it," Brennan's attorney Michael Green said. "If they smell anything that they believe is alcohol - and most alcohol doesn't have any odor - you're flunking it. You're failing this test."

According to the report, Brennan gave police permission to move his rental car to a safe location. Police say that's when they noticed a "strong smell" of marijuana in the car and spotted a "small, green bag" containing a while powdery substance.

Officers say they immediately recognized the bag as a carrier for illicit drugs.

Brennan was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving and promoting a dangerous drug.

According to officials, Brennan could lose his license for a year and have to install an ignition interlock device within his car.

Honolulu prosecutors are still awaiting a final report from HPD.
