Suspended officer accused of drunk driving

LA PORTE, Ind. — A South Bend police officer currently suspended for drunk driving was arrested on Sunday for DUI according to La Porte Police.

Officers said Patrolman Jeff McKee's blood alcohol level as about two times the legal limit.

ABC57 contacted the South Bend Police Department and they said they are aware of McKee's recent charges and have re-initiated an investigation.

Earlier this month, the Board of Public Safety suspended McKee for an October 2012 arrest for DUI. He accepted a plea and in December that charge was reduced to reckless driving.
