IMPD officer facing drunk-driving charges to appear in court today
A Metro Police officer is expected to appear in court today facing charges of drunk driving.
Officer Allen Johnson was off-duty and driving his personal car when he reportedly drove over a roundabout and crashed into a telephone pole.
Fishers Police say the five-year IMPD veteran admitted to drinking three to four mixed drinks before getting behind the wheel.
Johnson's blood-alcohol content registered at .13.
The department suspended Johnson without pay until an internal investigation is finished.
This is Johnson's second alcohol-related arrest in two years.
