Sheriff Wall not discussing loss of driver’s license

Steamboat Springs — Routt County Sheriff Gary Wall declined Friday to make any comment regarding the one-year revocation of his driver's license, which the Colorado Department of Revenue upheld in a Wednesday hearing of Wall's appeal. Colorado State Patrol issued the revocation following an Oct. 27 traffic stop during which Wall refused to take a Breathalyzer test when Trooper Brett Hilling cited him for driving under the influence near the intersection of U.S. Highway 40 and Walton Creek Road. — Routt County Sheriff Gary Wall declined Friday to make any comment regarding the one-year revocation of his driver's license, which the Colorado Department of Revenue upheld in a Wednesday hearing of Wall's appeal.

Wall would not address whether the loss of his driver’s license would impact his effectiveness as sheriff or increase costs for the Routt County Sheriff’s Office. He said he did not wish to prepare a written statement Friday and did not indicate plans for any upcoming comment.

“I’m just not going to discuss it,” Wall said. “I’m not going to respond to anything relating to this case.”
