Suspended Detroit Officer Arrested for Drunk Driving

A suspended Detroit police officer was arrested on a drunken driving charge Sunday after a collision with another motorist.

Detroit Deputy Chief Rodney Johnson said that at 12:50 p.m. Sunday, Detroit police officers responded to a 911 call of a crash on Plymouth Road near Memorial.

The officer, a woman whom police did not identify by age or number of years on the force, was westbound on Plymouth when a collision occurred with an eastbound vehicle.

Johnson said the accident was caused by the officer, who was not injured but was charged with operating a vehicle while impaired.

The driver of the other vehicle was not injured but her passenger complained of stomach pain and was evaluated, Johnson said.

Information on why and when the officer was suspended was not immediately available, Johnson said.
