LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - More than 200 drunken-driving cases could be in jeopardy after officials said a former breath test operator for Louisville’s corrections department was suspended after allegations that she lied on a report and in testimony under oath.

The Courier-Journal reports (https://cjky.it/1UeMy6D ) that a video recording from the jail shows that Liliana Hernandez falsely claimed on a form and in court that a suspect refused to take a breath test, for which his license was automatically suspended. Court records say that the recording shows the defendant wanted to take the test.

Mark Bolton, director of Louisville Metro Corrections, said Friday that authorities are investigating. Bolton says Hernandez is a witness in more than 200 DUI cases.

Hernandez did not respond to an email sent to her by the newspaper Friday.
