Police Watchdog Probing Cases of Alleged Drinking & Driving by Off-Duty Officers

Independent Investigation Unit of Manitoba - IIUManitoba’s police watchdog is investigating two incidents involving alleged impaired driving by two off-duty RCMP officers.

The Independent Investigation Unit says the Neepawa detachment received a report on May 22 of a vehicle being driven erratically on Highway 16. The complaint included possible drinking and driving offences by the off-duty officer.

On June 9, RCMP pulled over a vehicle near the intersection of Highway 52 and Provincial Road 206, west of Steinbach. A roadside screening test was administered to the driver — an off-duty officer — who was served with a 72-hour licence suspension.

In both cases, the IIU has determined it’s in the public interest to investigate. No further information was released.
