HPD officers reprimanded for officer DWI

Posted on September 27th, 2011 No Comments

Seven Houston law enforcement officers are in hot water after an investigation showed they helped cover up a fellow officer’s drunk driving accident. In April, a police sergeant crashed into an empty school bus on his way to work. The officer had bottles of wine and open beer cans in his car, but other officers at the scene claimed he was not drunk despite having a blood alcohol content of 0.176.

The sergeant has been fired from the Houston Police Department and at least two officers were suspended for one day without pay. The assistant chief was given a written reprimand. The bus driver was issued a ticket for failing to yield, which has since been dismissed.
