A Rock Hill police officer is on “procedural suspension” and being charged with driving under the influence (DUI). Police report that he was driving his Chevrolet Malibu down Main Street around 1:20 a.m.
It was reported that he was driving fast enough that when he went over railroad tracks his car bottomed out. The officers who pulled the car over could smell a strong odor of alcohol emanating from the driver. The driver then proceeded to fail several field sobriety tests.
He was taken to the Tega Cay Police Department where he failed to give a breath sample. He was immediately given his notice of suspension form. The man was driving an unmarked vehicle, and the report did not state whether it belonged to Rock Hill Police.
