Also, from the Louisville Metro Police Department website:

November 9, 2005
"Metro Police Chief Robert White terminated Officer John R. Kelly for violating three department rules by driving his cruiser on April 21 after drinking two glasses of vodka and taking Ambien, a prescription sleeping pill. 

"Kelly, 40, was arrested that day after he rear-ended a vehicle carrying two people at Cane Run and Camp Ground roads, and then drove into a ditch. He was charged with DUI and refusing to take a blood-alcohol test."

  1. I don’t know why the hell on world John rejected breath test. Doesn’t he knows his problems will be compounded when he refused a field test? I have worked with a DUI lawyer and have seen how wrong cops and jury look at those people who failed to take test and it’s a confirmation that the person was drunk.
