LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A former breath test operator for Louisville’s corrections department has been fired after admitting to lying on a report and in testimony under oath.

Corrections officials announced to local media Wednesday that Louisville Metro Corrections Director Mark Bolton terminated Liliana Hernandez earlier that day after meeting with Hernandez, her counsel and a union representative.

Officials say a video recording from the jail shows that 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.

Bolton says Hernandez is a witness in more than 200 DUI cases and an internal investigation is ongoing.
