Judge Find Police Officer Not Guilty of Texas DUI

By Mary Ann

A Fort Worth Texas judge found a police officer not guilty of DUI and scolded Keller Texas police for treating the officer more harshly because she was a police officer. Court records showed that a Keller police officer stopped the Fort Worth officer for speeding. The Keller officer said that the woman’s breath smelled of alcohol and that she stated she had hardly anything to drink.  The Keller officer said that she refused to take a Breathalyzer test and was “uncooperative” about field sobriety tests. She was released, but a warrant was issued a few days later for DUI.

Refusing to take the Breathalyzer did not indicate that she was guilty and trying to avoid jail, according to the judge. She was found not guilty of DUI, but her duty status is in the hands of the Fort Worth Internal Affairs Department, which will review the charges and the judge’s verdict finding her innocent of DUI.
