Drunk Cop Crashes Truck Pulling D.A.R.E. Trailer

News

"After striking that vehicle, he went on and struck a tree."

Now isn't this ironic.

A police officer in Salem, IN has been charged with a DUI after he crashed his truck that was pulling a D.A.R.E. trailer. The trailer had the familiar logo donning the acronym for Drug Abuse Resistance Education.  But not only is 38-year-old John Newcomb a local cop, he's the school resource officer in charge of seven local campuses, where he often gives talks about drunk driving.

WAVE-TV reports:

"He side swiped a vehicle that was legally parked on the side of the roadway," Sgt. Jerry Goodin of the Indiana State Police told WAVE. "After striking that vehicle, he went on and struck a tree."

Newcomb refused medical treatment on the scene. According to the report, there is no word yet on if he still has his job.
