PROVO, Utah — If Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Michael Irvine had a question about alcohol enforcement on the roads, there was no question about whom he called.

"If you had a question about something, Scott would help you, and he'd make you feel like a million bucks afterward," Irvine said of his friend and colleague, former UHP trooper and current Wasatch County Sheriff's Sgt. Scott Hathcock, who collapsed and died Thursday morning during a routine traffic stop in Provo Canyon.
