MADD Award Winner Arrested For DUI (Oh yeah, he is a cop too)
<snip>

AURORA, Ind. -- A Cincinnati police officer was jailed Thursday morning, charged with driving while intoxicated.

Charles Bebee, 53, was arrested in Aurora, Ind., around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday.

A police report stated that an officer spotted a sport utility vehicle moving at a high rate of speed, then a car behind the SUV stopped to tell the officer that the driver of the SUV was going to cause an accident.

The officer followed the SUV for some time before pulling it over for doing 55 in a 35 mph zone.

The report said the officer gave a field sobriety test to Bebee, who failed it. The report said Bebee consented to a chemical test, where his blood-alcohol level was determined to be .08 percent.

Police said that Bebee was charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated and operating while intoxicated with a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving presented Bebee with a Top Cop award earlier this year.

Cincinnati police said Beebe would be assigned to desk duty, with police powers suspended, pending the outcome of his court case.

5. There are more cops per square foot in Indiana than
ANYWHERE I have ever lived. They are SERIOUS about their law enforcement- they even patrol the back country roads. They cover EVERYTHING in Indiana.

ago?

This is why I am "Designated Driver" always. Not even a glass of wine those limits are so low.

10. I agree. Drunk driving laws are a good thing but I sometimes think
they've made the levels too low. It almost appears the low levels get arrested for drunk driving while the 2.5ers wrap themselves around another car. :(
