Suspended Tweed police officer charged with drink driving
A SUSPENDED Tweed shire police officer has been charged with high range drink-driving.
On Sunday, the 48-year-old was arrested in relation to an alleged drink-driving incident.
A NSW police spokeswoman said the officer was breath-tested at Tweed Heads and returned a high range reading of 0.173%.
"Police suspended the man's driver's licence and released him pending the serving of a future court attendance notice," the statement said.
"He will appear in Tweed Heads Local Court on a date to be fixed for driving with a high-range prescribed concentration of alcohol (PCA) and other driving offences."
Investigations are continuing into the matter.
The officer had been suspended on an unrelated matter.
