The job is stressful, but so are many others. If there's any group who should know the kind of trouble that can arise from drunken driving and just how few drinks it takes to cross the .08 line, it would be police.
But it's happened again: another IMPD officer has been nabbed and charged with driving while impaired, this time after reports of someone driving erratically.
Meanwhile -- and I'm sure it's totally, completely unrelated -- the Marion County Prosecutor opines the city's police force is short some 700 officers. But hey, no pressure, huh?
