A police officer was fired after being charged with DUI while in his patrol vehicle in South Carolina. Officers received a call about a suspicious car at a Chesterfield fast food restaurant early Sunday morning and upon arrival, found the officer in his unmarked patrol unit, according to Carolina Live. Chesterfield Police Chief Eric Hewett said he was stopped as he pulled into the driveway of a home nearby and would not take a field sobriety test or breathalyzer. The think blue line seems blurry in these areas because on one hand the man will loose everything from career to future plans for his family, but there is no room for professional courtesy in these cases… Bad decision and the officer was arrested and taken into custody like any other “Joe” to Chesterfield County Detention Center. Cheraw Police Chief Jay Brooks was quoted saying; “David Watson is a fine officer and person who has made a very dangerous mistake. We deeply regret this for him, his family and friends, and this department.”
