Philadelphia police officer charged with DUI hit & run

GasBuddy Blog -- A Philadelphia police officer was arrested earlier this week after she allegedly struck several vehicles with her car and then fled the scene while she was under the influence.

Law enforcement sources told NBC10 that June Nowell, an 18th District Police officer, struck several parked cars early Friday morning in Northeast Philadelphia. Nowell then allegedly fled the scene in her vehicle.

Sources say a witness directed responding officers towards Nowell and she was arrested a short time later.

Obviously, when anyone drives while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, it endangers themselves and many others on the road. But should those we trust to uphold the law be held to a higher standard?

Aside from the other consequences, wouldn't this be a dismissal offence? We really don't need police officers that act this way.

Not interested, unless she drove thru a station and took out several gas pumps! Sounds like she could have!

Unfortunately Police are people too. They have the same problems as others. This does not excuse this type of behavior but it is a fact of life.

Philadelphia police officer charged with DUI hit & run! June Nowell, struck several parked cars, then fled the scene in her vehicle. A witness directed responding officers towards Nowell and she was arrested. June was off duty and not using a police vehicle at the time of the crash. The officer was taken off the street and relieved of police powers pending the outcome of the case. There were no injuries.
***She should be treated like everyone else that drinks and drives. Arrested, Jail, Court Appearance, Sentencing, Drunk Driving Fines, Suspension of drivers license for a specified time, Maybe, Maybe return to work......
Hey, June - Do the Crime - Do the Time. *Is it July yet?
And, the many times police race through intersections With stop lights, their roof lights and siren ON, hit inocennt vehicles, sometimes killing the occupants, and they get off scot free!
Something smells very rotten in...... ***Putz!! bwaaa ha ha ha !... What a crap of crock!
Drive vehicles with high mpg, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!
