Nisqually Tribal Officer Arrested for Hit and Run

A Nisqually tribal police officer was arrested Friday morning, suspected of DUI and hit and run.

Police say the man was off duty and driving his own car when he apparently swerved off 183rd Avenue Southwest and ran over two mailboxes around 2 a.m.

Witnesses say he drove away from the scene. He was arrested minutes later.

“A cop should know better than that,” said Faye Hull, who was awakened by the sound of the car hitting her mailbox..

“Drinking and driving don’t mix,” said Hull, “And cops know the rules.”
