The man also had dark gray medium-length hair and possibly a short goatee. He had a green military style backpack with three large pockets on the outside and smoked a pipe with “4 Aces” mint pipe tobacco.

‘Trooper of the Year’ reassigned during investigation

The ex-Utah Highway Patrol Officer who received  “Trooper of the Year” was removed off the streets this week while the state attorney general is investigating the DUI cases she was involved in.

Officer Lisa Steed holds the state record for 400 DUI arrests in 2009. However, hundreds of cases involving her citations and DUI arrests are under review since she was accused of using unscrupulous tactics to pull drivers over and cite them for driving under the influence. On Tuesday, a Salt Lake County judge ruled her testimony in a DUI case wasn’t credible and threw it out. A Davis County case, where she was the arresting officer, was thrown out Thursday.

Attorney Greg Law represents a Woods Cross woman Steed pulled over last year. He says:

“Trooper Steed accused my client of crossing the centerline and nearly colliding with her,” said Law. The judge said the traffic stop was justified but not a DUI arrest. “[The judge said] that her testimony was exaggerated, that her testimony had a lot of inconsistencies from it too and lacked credibility,” said Law. With the consistency of accusations, claims against Steed became a concern. ‘We realized we had a situation we needed to get out in front of,” said Dwayne Baird, spokesperson for the Department of Public Safety.

Utah Highway Patrol has brought in an outside agency to determine if Steed broke the law. The Utah Attorney General’s Office is investigating too. While that happens, Baird says Steed is off Davis County streets and reassigned to “a non-law enforcement capacity within the Department of Public Safety.”
