Sergeant Ed Coulter Accused of Drunk Driving Retires


A long-time Baton Rouge police officer accused of driving drunk and crashing his patrol car is retiring from the police force.

Sergeant Ed Coulter crashed into a truck on South Choctaw while off-duty in October of this year.

Investigators say Coulter had a blood-alcohol level of .11, which is over the legal limit.

His retirement takes effect on Saturday.

He will stay on unpaid administrative leave until his retirement.
