A Springfield police officer is charged with DUI following a weekend incident. Officer James Stewart is a 15-year veteran of the force.
Police Chief Kenny Winslow says officers responded to a report of a disabled vehicle on Stevenson Drive early Saturday… and allegedly found Stewart behind the wheel.
Winslow wouldn’t say how officers determined that Stewart was intoxicated.
Stewart is on paid leave while the criminal case and an internal affairs investigation run their course.
