FISHERS, Ind. - A north district IMPD officer was arrested Friday morning on suspicion of operating while intoxicated.
IMPD Officer Allen Johnson, 27, was arrested by Fishers police Friday morning just before 7 a.m.. Police said he was off-duty and driving his personal vehicle at the time of the arrest.
Johnson, a 5-year veteran of the force, is assigned to IMPD's north district.
His bond was set at $7,500.
IMPD Assistant Chief Lloyd Crowe said Johnson had been suspended without pay pending an internal affairs investigation.
“As a department we are very disappointed right now,” said Assistant Chief Lloyd Crowe “We expect our officers to have better decision making skills both on-duty and off-duty. We will continue to ensure our officers have the resources available to address stress related issues that come with a career in law enforcement, but we will not accept behavior that puts our community at risk."
Johnson's arrest marks the eighth time an IMPD officer has been locked up for suspected DUI/OWI since August 6, 2013.
Last month, IMPD leaders said they were considering an Alcoholics Anonymous program for officers.
