Two police officers, including the president of the Peel Regional Police Association and a York regional police officer, were arrested for impaired driving over the weekend.
Provincial police confirmed both arrests.
Adrian Woolley, 44, of Burlington is the president of the PRPA. Police tweeted that he was charged with impaired driving with a blood alcohol level above 0.08 and stunt driving. The OPP says he was taken into police custody after being stopped on the QEW in Burlington on Saturday night.
York Regional Police Constable Tina Teeter, 42, of Barrie was arrested on Sunday afternoon on Highway 400 in York Region.
She has been charged with impaired driving.
York police said Teeter has been an officer since August 2003 and has worked in Community Services and the Collision Reporting Centre. She has been placed on administrative duties.
Chief Eric Jolliffe called the incident “very troubling considering the work that York Regional Police is doing to combat impaired driving.”
He added the officer’s arrest took place while she was off-duty.
