Candace Rushton, 34, is denying she was drunk when she was pulled over at East Big Beaver and Rochester Road while off-duty on Jan. 18. She was driving a pickup truck that other officers say struck the curb, drove up on the median and then stopped.
Rushton refused a breathalyzer test and a search warrant was obtained for a blood draw. The blood sample showed a 0.27 blood alcohol content.
Rushton is on administration leave while the case is under investigation.
