According to Fox News:
Several people called to report an impaired driver on US 163 around 8:40 p.m. that night.
Callers reported the driver parked in the middle of the road, then drove to a gas station and ultimately crashed into a ditch. Witnesses said the driver was visibly intoxicated, did not cooperate, and tried to leave the scene.
The off-duty officer was the lone occupant of the vehicle.
The agency states Navajo Nation privacy laws prevent them from releasing the name of the officer.
“The Navajo Police Department will take the necessary steps to hold our officers accountable for any misconduct that occurs while employed with this department,” Navajo Police Chief Phillip Francisco stated.
Police officers are human just like everyone else and mistakes happen. If you have recently been arrested for a DUI I can help. I have successfully defended DUI cases in Salt Lake County, Davis County, Utah County, Weber County, and Summit County. I am a former police officer so I know the ins and outs of the evidence submitted by the arresting officer. I also have good relationships with the county prosecutors. So if I can’t get your case dismissed I can usually get the charges dropped down to lesser penalties.
