Port of Seattle CEO Speeding Before DUI Arrest

Port of Seattle CEO Ted Fick was speeding at 79 mph in a 50-mph zone when he was pulled over last week on Highway 520 and arrested for investigation of DUI, according to a Washington State Patrol arrest report released Monday.

According to KOMO News, two breath tests administered soon afterward registered blood-alcohol readings of .097 and .096, according to the arrest report.

The arrest report released Monday stated that Fick’s coordination was poor, his eyes were severely bloodshot and watery and the odor of intoxicants was strong and obvious when he was pulled over. He was also unable to follow instructions in a field sobriety test, according to the report.

He was cooperative during the arrest and told the trooper that he didn’t believe his ability to drive was affected and that he didn’t think he was going that fast.

In his statement released last week, Fick said, “I do not condone impaired driving in any way, shape or form. I will work closely with the justice system to ensure a swift resolution to this matter.”
