    Sounds like the crash wasn't his fault but the DUI IS!

    Somewhere an insurance guy is crying. That's going to be very expensive.

    I call BS Everyone knows that cops don't arrest other cops for DUI.

    I learned that on the INTERNET so it must be true.

    :cool:

    does it hold true that a cop shouldn't speak to a cop?

    He remembered that it was Valentine's Day and needed a present. The DUI is just the cover story.

    what if the off duty cop had had his hat on? Could the other cop have still arrested him?

    Ohhhhhh Boooooyyyyyyy!!!!!! Another cop bashing thread. Didn't we just finish one?

    As for cop arresting cop, when they do that kind of damage in a very public place, they have to arrest them, it would be too obvious not to. Now if this was a light pole in a rural area, with no witnesses, it might be a different story.


    So will the passengers in the car be charged if they were not drinking?

    Nope. Credibility is critical in law enforcement.

    I've never arrested one of our own...but I've seen plenty go down for stupid stuff. We lost and local officer recently because he wanted to bang a prostitute on duty.

    He's doing two years.

    My state publishes a news letter reviewing all criminal cases involving officers who have lost their "standards."

    Very sad event. On the ride along i went on the officer told me that during the recruitment process that the department seemed very concerned with how much one drank, because "for some reason this job leads people to drink, i dont know why but it does."

    The fact he was an LEO definitely does not play to his favor. However, he was not on duty at the time and that should be noted.

    Most departments I know would fire you for DUI...maybe...if you are lucky...you get sent to rehab and then end up pulling correctional duty for the next two years.

    I was referring solely to the criminal charges and criminal penalties, I do not know at all how the police department would handle it, I was just referring to jailtime/penalites/community service/license suspension period
