In a tweet, OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said Woolley, who is from Burlington, has also been charged with stunt driving. Wolley was stopped Saturday evening after he was seen speeding along the QEW in Burlington.

Additionally, the second officer to be charged is Constable Tina Teeter, a 42-year-old with York Regional Police who is from Barrie.

Teeter was stopped along Highway 400 in the York Region on Sunday afternoon around 5 pm. She was also charged with having a blood alcohol level in excess of 80 mg.

In a statement, York Regional Police confirmed one of its members was charged with an impaired-related criminal offence this Sunday, while the member was off duty.

“This is very troubling considering the work that York Regional Police is doing to combat impaired driving,” said Chief Eric Jolliffe.

“We are confirming the information the OPP has released, including the officer’s identity. As this is not a YRP incident, further queries regarding this investigation should be directed to the OPP.”

Teeter has been a member of York Regional Police since August 2003. She has previously worked in Community Services and the Collision Reporting Centre and she is currently a Uniform Patrol Officer in #4 District.

Following her arrest, she has been placed on administrative duties.

“We are committed to the fight against impaired driving and we hold our members to the same, if not higher, standard than members of our community. We continue to remind our members of their responsibility to live the values of our organization, both on and off duty,” said Chief Jolliffe.
