A six-year member of the Calgary Police Service was charged with impaired driving following a traffic stop on Wednesday.
Timothy Callaghan was off duty when he was pulled over at around 6:40 pm on May 22 after police received reports of a potentially impaired driver, according to a CPS release.
Callaghan was arrested and charged with one count of impaired driving in southeast Calgary, and the release noted that he is currently on an unrelated leave of absence.
“The charged officer is afforded the right to a fair trial, as is any member of the public, and will receive the appropriate supports from the Service during the court process,” the release states.
CPS also noted that the details of the arrest have been released for the sake of public transparency.
