Beverly Hills Police Officer Arrested for DUI After Crashing Into Home

Posted By Attorney Bernstein || 30-Sep-2012

An off-duty Beverly Hills police officer was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after crashing a pickup into a house in Simi Valley. The pickup, the officer's personal vehicle, first hit a utility pole, crashed into a retaining wall, and then the home’s fence, some pool equipment, an air conditioner, and a natural gas line. The car ended up flipping and coming through the bedroom wall of the home, where the resident was in bed watching television.

The officer was booked into Ventura County Jail after being treated for minor injuries at the hospital. If convicted, it is likely that the officer will be put on probation with requirements that he complete a DUI Traffic School Program and pay fines and restitution. In some DUI cases, a judge may also require the installation of an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) for up to three years in any case where he/she believes is appropriate to do so.
