He was obviously in no condition to get behind the wheel and he will pay dearly for it. Last July, a Zurich police officer caused an accident while traveling on the A51 motorway to go on night duty. Shortly after 9 p.m., he violently hit a security barrier while taking the Kloten (ZH) exit and destroyed his private car.

Dispatched to the scene, his colleagues ordered a blood test, which revealed a blood alcohol level of 2.2 per thousand, as well as cocaine consumption. Heard by the Public Prosecutor’s Office, the 50-year-old police officer admitted to having drunk all day and to having taken drugs. According to the “Tages-Anzeiger”, the representative of the police received a suspended financial sentence amounting to 11,000 francs, as well as a fine of 2,000 francs. Fees included, he will have to pay 6,200 francs.

Although his driving license obviously jumped, the criminal order (OP) issued against him does not indicate whether he also lost his job. In this type of case, neither the fine nor the withdrawal of license are automatically communicated to the employer of the person convicted. However, police officers who are the subject of a criminal investigation are supposed to announce it to their superiors themselves. Finally, the OP does not specify, either, to which police force the accused belongs, or belonged, to.
