A sergeant with the Helena Police Department pleaded not guilty to two driving under the influence charges after allegedly having a blood-alcohol content level more than twice the legal limit.

Corey Livesay entered the plea on July 12 to driving under the influence and aggravated driving under the influence, both first offenses.

He is due back in court Aug. 16 for an omnibus hearing following his arrest on Monday, July 10.

Livesay was arrested after police responded to the 1800 block of Custer Avenue for a reported welfare check of a man sitting in a running vehicle around 7:45 p.m. After further investigation, it was determined Livesay’s BAC was  0.178 percent. The legal limit for driving is 0.08 percent.

Helena Officer Adam Shanks signed the two citations, one for driving under the influence and another for aggravated DUI because Livesay’s BAC was greater than 0.16 percent, or two times the legal limit.

Livesay was released Monday night.
