When someone hears that a person was arrested on a DWI or suspicion of a DWI, the image that may come to mind is often different from the reality. Many assume that people who are accused of driving while intoxicated are irresponsible people who do nothing but party. This is not always the case, and one New York police officer may now be able to relate to the stigma of being accused of a DWI.
The police officer, who was off-duty, was recently arrested and charged with a DWI and leaving the scene of an accident. Just minutes before midnight, the police officer allegedly got into a car accident and left the scene. No details have been released yet about the accident, or why it happened.
