DENVER (AP) - State officials are reviewing DUI blood alcohol tests after dozens of tests conducted in the last six months were found to be incorrect.

KCNC-TV reports (https://cbsloc.al/1RL5s59 ) that Colorado Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Susan Medina says initial results found in 56 blood tests revealed lower alcohol levels for drivers than when they were retested by an independent laboratory in Boulder. The CBI says there’s no indication people were charged inappropriately based on the erroneous test results.

The state agency has conducted about 1,500 DUI blood tests for law enforcement agencies since July 2015.

The laboratory notified state authorities of the faulty tests in December.

CBI has not revealed the exact cause of the testing discrepancies, but says they have corrected the problem.



An investigation into the tests is ongoing.
