Early Saturday morning, a Seattle police sergeant was arrested for driving under the influence and involvement in a hit-and-run accident.
According to the State Patrol, officers reported that the sergeant committed a series of traffic violations in the department-leased Chevrolet Impala. The sergeant was stopped by police at Western Avenue and Spring Street.
The officer refused to take field sobriety tests. He did take a portable breath test at the scene, and alcohol was not a factor. A blood test was ordered and he was taken to Harborview Medical Center.
Charges have not been filed, but the case is expected to go to King County District Court.
