The suspended Detroit police officer who was arrested this weekend suspected of driving drunk has been suspended from the department after other serious charges were brought against her last year.
said Officer Dana Bond was driving off-duty near
Plymouth Road and Memorial Street Sunday afternoon when she turned in
front of another vehicle, causing an accident. No one was seriously
hurt. Police say Bond tried to leave the scene.
She has been
suspended from the department indefinitely and without pay since
November 2013, when police say she was charged with two counts of
misdemeanor retail fraud.
The day of the accident police say her blood alcohol level was a 0.26, almost three times the legal limit.
say she will be arraigned on charges of drunken driving and trying to
flee the scene later this week, and she awaits her next retail fraud
preliminary exam later this month.
