Legalized marijuana in Colorado has only been in place for half of a month, but police are already accusing a man of causing a crash with Colorado State Patrol troopers while he was under the influence of drugs.

These days, fans of the Denver Broncos are probably most focused on the team's ongoing playoff bout.

When someone is pulled over for speeding, they might think they will just apologize, accept responsiblity and the police officer might be kind enough to let the person off with a warning.

Two people were arrested in seperate incidents stemming from one traffic stop. The arrests came earlier this month after a woman was stopped in her car, and police arrested her on multiple charges.

A man was shot and killed earlier this month by Colorado law enforcement after reportedly being pulled over by police. The man was allegedly stopped because of a traffic violation, but police say he ran. While the officers chased the man, they said that they believed he had a gun, so he was shot.
The alleged conduct of a Denver police officer during a traffic stop has resulted in a civil rights violation case making its way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

A Colorado driver allegedly led law enforcement officers on a four county chase. Police claim the driver was traveling at speeds of 100 to 110 miles per hour, and several times swerved to avoid spike strips that authorities had placed upon the road.
It is alleged that a motorcycle rider was traveling at speeds of up to 130 miles per hour before entering into the state of Colorado. A police pursuit of the rider eventually led to the motorcyclist being pulled over north of Fort Collins. However, nobody was injured while the chase allegedly went on, and the motorcyclist was apparently not observed in breaking any Colorado laws.
