Officer Charged With DUI No Longer With UA Police
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A University of Arizona police sergeant charged in February with super-extreme DUI no longer works for the school.
A U of A spokeswoman said July 1 was John McGrath's last day of employment. The 27-year-old McGrath had been on investigative suspension.
He was arrested Feb. 1 after crashing a police department SUV into a traffic sign while on duty.
Police said McGrath was driving the marked vehicle when he hit a sign and a concrete wall on an Interstate-10 frontage road.
Officers investigating the crash conducted a DUI investigation and police said McGrath's blood-alcohol content was .20 percent or greater.
He was charged with super-extreme DUI, three lesser DUI charges, failure to control speed to avoid a collision and criminal damage.
McGrath had worked for the UA Police Department since 2009.
