A Utica police officer was charged with driving while impaired earlier this month in Niagara Falls, Canada, and currently is suspended without pay.
Officer John Abel was arrested by the Canadian Border Services at about 2 a.m. on Nov. 2 near the Rainbow Bridge, which is one of the main thoroughfares from the U.S. to Canada.
Abel was driving a city-owned grey Ford Fusion at the time of his arrest. He and another city officer had gone to Niagara Falls for training in community policing.
The allegations were disappointing to the department, police Chief Mark Williams said.
“John will be held responsible,” he said.“As a disciplinary matter, this is still ongoing.”
Abel, whose salary last year was $68,515, is in charge of the city’s Armadillo nuisance abatement program and handles other community and public nuisance issues. Those duties are being shared by several officers, Williams said.
“It is a burden for the department,” he said.
Abel was charged with driving while impaired and with more than 80 milligrams of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood, according to Constable Derek Watson, media officer for the Niagara Regional Police. That is the equivalent of driving with a blood alcohol content over a 0.08 in the U.S.
Abel was arraigned and released. He could not be reached for comment.
The department is not paying Abel’s attorney.
Mayor Robert Palmieri declined to comment, citing personnel rules.
“As city employees, we’re all held to a higher standard, as we should be,” he said.
