A former Montgomery police officer accused of beating a man during a traffic stop in 2008, is back in hot water.

Matthew Leavitt is charged with misdemeanor DUI. According to a criminal complaint, Dunbar Police found Leavitt slumped over his wheel off of the I-64 exit ramp Saturday night. Police say the car was running and the transmission was in drive.

According to the criminal complaint, Leavitt admitted to police that he had "several" drinks that night and he was trying to make it home.

Leavitt is being held in the South Central Regional Jail on a $2,500 bond.

In 2008, Leavitt was accused of beating Twan Reynolds during a traffic stop and unfairly charging his wife, Lauren Santella-Reynolds with drunk driving.

Leavitt was also accused of depriving the couple of their constitutional rights.

In July of 2009, Leavitt pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor federal civil rights charges he committed under "The Color Of Law".

He admitted to beating Reynolds with a slap jack, an unauthorized weapon for police officers, and pleaded guilty to arresting Reynold's wife for drunk driving without reason.

"once a scumbag allways a scumbag"

Unrelated, but this is why I don't understand the support that Newt Gingrich has been able to gather. People have short memories.
