GLENDALE, ARIZONA – Friday, a Glendale Police lieutenant has been cited for DUI.
Rachael Bousman, age 39, was cited and released.
Phoenix Police responded to a call about an impaired driver about 1:15 a.m. Friday, in the area of 7th Ave and Bethany Home Road.
A witness reported a single vehicle accident with a car stuck on a parking block, according to Phoenix Police.
Police had probable cause to determine the driver was impaired. Bousman’s blood was drawn and she was processed for DUI. BAC results are pending.
“The message here is very clear, we are going to enforce DUI equally here in the city of Phoenix, it doesn’t matter who it is,” said Phoenix Police Sgt. Trent Crump.
“It is difficult to cite and arrest your own, but it is what’s expected from us as an organization and it is what the residents of Phoenix expect from us.”
Glendale Police Sgt. Brent Coombs says Bousman is currently on paid administrative leave. She has been with the Glendale Police Department for 14 years.
If convicted, she faces anywhere between 10 and 90 days in jail plus fines.
