ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque police officer who was shot four times during a January traffic stop is back at work.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1IVyjhA) that Lou Golson is dividing his time between checking on his cases at court and doing background checks on potential cadets.

But the 31-year veteran officer said Friday that he wants to be back with the department’s DWI unit.

Golson says he is not yet physically capable but believes that will change.

Police say Golson was conducting a suspected drunken driving traffic stop Jan. 3 for 36-year-old Christopher Cook, a homeless man.

They say Cook fired several shots at Golson.

The officer was struck four times and suffered a broken femur.

Cook has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and other charges.
