Officer arrested for drunk driving while already under suspension

Terry Austin

A Greenfield police officer already under suspension was arrested for the third time over the weekend on suspicion of drunk driving.

A McCordsville police officer said he pulled Austin over early Saturday morning after he nearly sideswiped his squad car.

Austin was under suspension for an unrelated incident. He was charged earlier this year with bribery and official misconduct after he allegedly tried to bribe fellow officers in February to pull over his ex-wife and tow her car. He was also charged with promoting prostitution in June after allegedly offering two women $200 to have sex with him and an officer visiting from Florida.
