Doraville Police Officer Accused of DUI

Posted by Richard Lawson | Oct 17, 2011 | 0 Comments

Last weekend, a City of Doraville DUI officer was himself arrested for DUI following a motor vehicle accident. Doraville DUI Officer Kasey Lindsey was placed on leave after the incident and has now been terminated from the Doraville police force.

DeKalb County DUI officers responded to a wreck last week on Memorial Drive. Mr. Lindsay told responding officers that he had fallen asleep while driving. He had rear ended another vehicle. While investigating the incident, DeKalb Co. DUI officers allegedly smelled the odor of alcohol coming from Lindsay. He admitted that he had been drinking at a Doraville strip club prior to driving. The DeKalb officers had Lindsay perform field sobreity tests, which he failed. Later, Lindsay submitted to a breath test and blew a reported .15, nearly twice the legal BAC level in Georgia.

In addition, to losing his position as a Doraville police officer, Lindsay is facing charges for DUI, following too closely, not having valid registration and no proof of insuarance.

A DUI when a wreck and injuries are involved is generally considered more serious and can even be charged as a felony DUI, though Lindsay's charges are all misdemeanors.
