Gatineau police will evaluate the “next steps” for a suspended officer after he was acquitted Friday of four-year-old drunk driving charges.
Const. Charles Carpentier was arrested by fellow officers on patrol on Oct. 15, 2014, after a car crashed into two unoccupied, parked vehicles at around 6 a.m.
Carpentier was not on duty at the time.
Police at the scene said the other vehicles received minor damage and no injuries were reported.
Carpentier was taken to a Sûreté du Québec police station where he was tested and his driver’s licence suspended for 24 hours before he was released.
He was acquitted of impaired driving in a Gatineau courtroom on Friday.
