Philly Police: Off-Duty Cop Drove Drunk, Hit Four Parked Cars

An off-duty police officer was drunk, Philadelphia police allege, when he crashed his car into four parked vehicles.

Now, the 40-year-old, four-year veteran is on administrative duty while the district attorney's office reviews pending charges against him, including drunken driving.

The officer hit the cars in north Philadelphia about 6 a.m. Wednesday. One of the four vehicles hit was pushed into a row home.

Police Capt. Sekou Killebrew says a breath test showed the officer's blood-alcohol content was 0.198 percent, nearly two-and-a-half times the state's limit of 0.08 percent.

Nobody was hurt in the crashes.
