why not tell what his BAC was? if it were you or I they would have our photo and BAC listed as if you killed someone. police are no better than you or I when it comes to breaking the law. post his picture like the criminal he is.

Wrong is wrong, he has been charged and will most likely lose his job and career. He is a grown man and knew better than most because of his job. However, hundreds of people are arrested every week for DWI and their picturs and BAC are not posted on the news, why should his be? Better yet why is this even a story there are numerous wreckes involving DWI drivers that don't make the news what makes his special. Only because he is a police officer, he was off duty so that makes him a regular "joe". No need to even have reported this FOX 8. If he had been on duty then by all means blow the story up.
