Durham Police Officer Charged With DWI After On-Duty Crash

Authorities in Durham say a police officer is charged with driving under the influence after an on-duty crash.

Investigators said Kevin A. Stewart's patrol car ran into the back of another vehicle as it slowed for a traffic light around 9 a.m. Thursday.

Authorities say drug and alcohol tests were done after the crash according to city policy and Stewart was charged with DWI a short time later.

A statement from police didn't say whether tests indicated if Stewart was impaired on drugs or alcohol, and a spokeswoman didn't immediately return a request for more information.

Stewart was placed on administrative leave. He joined the force in January 2009.

A telephone listing for Stewart couldn't be found and it wasn't clear if he had an attorney.

    He was still drunk from the night before. If you stop drinking at 2:00 in the morning when the bar closes you can still be over the legal limit at 9:00am.
