Under the influence? Off-duty Milwaukee police officer accused
MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A 43-year-old off-duty Milwaukee police officer was arrested late Monday, May 19th for allegedly driving under the influence.
A Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Deputy saw Stephanie James driving erratically on westbound I-94 near 16th Street just before midnight. The deputy also noticed James’ speed was fluctuating from 59 mph to 70 mph — and she was deviating lanes.
The deputy stopped the vehicle at US-41 on the northbound off-ramp to State and Vliet Streets.
James identified herself as an off-duty Milwaukee police officer and tested a .20 on a breath test — more than double the legal limit for driving. This was her first offense for driving under the influence (DUI).
