A police officer that was not on duty was arrested for DWI in Queens NY after he fled the scene of an accident, authorities said.

Police Officer Aaron Sanchez was driving a 1990 Ford when he hit the passenger side of a white 2003 Honda. The accident happened at Northern Blvd. and 50th St. in Queens NY at 10:40 pm Friday November 28th.

A witness to the hit and run accident pursued the driver and called police. This resulted in arrest of the off duty policeman.

Sanchez, 28, didn’t look good and smelled of alcohol. He was also wobbly and refused a Breathalzyer test, according to court records.

He was arraigned Saturday on charges of DWI and leaving the scene of an accident in Queens Criminal Court. He was released without bail.

No one was injured in the accident.
