Winnipeg police have charged one of their own officers with impaired driving.

Police were alerted to a business in the 1300 block of Henderson Highway on December 8, where it was reported a suspected impaired driver just left that location.

Officers identified the suspect as an off-duty member and arrested him a short time later at a residence. No injuries were reported.

Oleksii Gerasymchuk, 39, has been charged with impaired driving offences.

Police say the officer is a two-year member of the service.

The Independent Investigation Unit of Manitoba is monitoring the case.
