Sergeant Ed Coulter Accused of Drunk Driving Retires
BATON ROUGE, LA
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.
