INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Special Investigations Unit arrested an IMPD officer for suspicion of driving under the influence.

Officer Ken Brown was arrested while driving his police vehicle under the influence in Morgan County. Brown was preliminarily charged for operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

Internal Affairs Branch investigators will conduct an internal investigation. Brown has been placed on suspension without pay, pending the outcome of the internal investigation.

“We hold our officers to high standards and consider Officer Brown’s actions inconsistent with the mission and values of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, and the great work that our men and women do on a daily basis,” Assistant Chief Ron Hicks stated in a press release.

According to court documents this is not the first time Brown has been arrested. In August 2013 he was arrested in Mooresville for driving while intoxicated. He plead guilty to the charges in May, and spent six days in jail. His license was also suspended for 90 days.

Brown is a 16 year veteran of IMPD.
