BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A veteran Connecticut police officer who was charged with drunken driving for allegedly sideswiping a truck on a highway has applied for an alcohol education program.
Police say Delgado was on Interstate 95 in Fairfield on Aug. 8 when he struck the truck and then fled the scene. He has also been charged with illegally carrying a firearm while under the influence and failure to drive in the proper lane.
If the 26-year department veteran completes the program, the charges against him would be dismissed.
Delgado remains on duty.
Delgado and his lawyer declined to comment as they left the courthouse.
