Police Officer Charged With Virginia DUI

Andrew Page, an officer with the Roanoke Police Department, was charged with driving under the influence in Virginia after crashing a fully marked police cruiser. Page was driving north on Interstate 81 in Pulsaki County around 10:15 pm when he ran off the highway and hit a guardrail.

Virginia State Police received a call to 911 about six minutes before the accident reporting a motorist driving erratically.

Page, 33, was not in uniform and he cooperated with police at the scene. He submitted to a breath test, which yielded a blood alcohol level of 0.16%, or twice the legal limit for Virginia DUI. Page received very minor injuries though he totaled the city owned 2005 Ford Crown Victoria.

The Roanoke police department has said that Page has been suspended without pay pending an internal investigation. The department has refused comment on whether Page was on-duty or conducting official police business at the time of the DUI accident.
