Fondy Police Officer Facing Possible OWI Charges

2/20/12 – An off-duty Fond du Lac police officer could face charges of drunken driving and hit-and-run in connection with an accident early Friday morning. The officer was reportedly driving his personal vehicle at about 2am when he hit a parked vehicle. He is then accused of leaving the scene, but a neighbor who witnessed the accident had called 9-1-1. A Fond du Lac squad car pulled over the suspect in his vehicle, finding front-end damage and a broken headlight. The police department reports it has started an internal investigation. The 12-year veteran of the police force is on paid administrative leave while the case is investigated.
