Colorado State University RamRide volunteer arrested on suspicion of DUI

FORT COLLINS, Colo. - A student driver for a service that gives safe rides home for Colorado State University students has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving while on duty.

The Rocky Mountain Collegian reports campus police arrested the RamRide driver around 2 a.m. Friday.

A representative for the Larimer County district attorney's office says the student faces charges of speeding, driving under the influence of liquor, and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

RamRide is provided through the Associated Students of CSU.

The group's website says: "This program provides safe, non-judgmental rides for Colorado State University students with the goal of improving the safety of the Fort Collins community."

The website also says the program is "non-judgmental by never asking why a patron needs a ride home and never asking for facts like full name or age. A patron needs only to call in with basic information and location and they will be provided a ride with no questions asked."

The group's chief of staff, Robert Duran, says only the driver and another volunteer were in the car at the time of the arrest.
