Do the police offer counceling for officers caught driving under the influence?

Agent in unmarked State Police car pulled over in Albuquerque last night.

New Mexico State Police Agent John Lytle has been placed on administrative leave after being arrested by Albuquerque police at 9 p.m. Wednesday on a charge of aggravated driving while intoxicated, according to a State Police news release.

Lytle, who is assigned to the State Police Investigations Bureau, was driving an unmarked police vehicle at the time of his arrest, the news release said.

"The arrest of Agent Lytle is very disappointing and will be dealt with very swiftly," State Police Chief Faron Segotta said in the release. "I would like to reassure the citizens of New Mexico that incidents such as this illustrate the DWI problem in New Mexico and than no one is immune from it."

Segotta went on to say that the State Police remains "committed to fighting the war on DWI," and that the agency intends to make even more DWI arrests this year than the more than 3,400 arrests it posted in 2006.

A Minneapolis police officer was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence, police said.

Authorities said James K. Brickley, 38, was arrested overnight Thursday for a second DUI. He was stopped in Ramsey County and is a cop in Northeast Minneapolis.

Police said Brickley has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome in Ramsey County court and of an internal investigation.

Brickley is being held at the Ramsey County Jail

    Some do but usually they put them on night shift so they can confiscate beer from underage drinking parties. They obviously have a drinking problem and it's cheaper for hem this way. It's a take care of your own thing.

    Its called the "farm". they send you to rehab. The officer in an unmarked car. My guess that it would be his take home car...kind of like a company car for police.

    Most jobs would just let you take the day off for court. When you're an officer you have to go into the 28 day rehab program.

    Another cut and paste from - too bad you can't spell as well as the people you so blatantly plagiarize from.

    And Brickleys case happened in August of 2005 - gee how timely.

    I hope not... They should get jail time just like everyone else... A couple weekends ago a former sheriff hit an SUV head on and killed a mom and her 2 kids... I hope they lock him up and throw away the key...
