An off-duty Minneapolis police officer was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated in Minnesota Tuesday.
Around 7:00 pm, police were alerted to a suspected drunk driver by another motorist. Jeffrey Pennaz was stopped in a parking lot in the west suburbs of the Twin Cities. The investigating officers noticed a strong odor of alcohol, and a breath test revealed a blood alcohol content two and a half times the legal limit.
Pennaz had two children in the vehicle when he was stopped. He was booked on suspicion of Minnesota DWI at the Hennepin County jail. Gross misdemeanor charges are expected to be filed against Pennaz today.
