A Surprise Arizona police officer has been arrested on suspicion of aggravated DUI and endangerment.
Police say officer Mike Phillips was booked Tuesday after a collision in the area of Paradise Lane and Mountain Vista Boulevard.
During the course of the investigation, police say it was discovered that Phillips was impaired at the time of the accident. Police say a breath test showed Phillips had no alcohol in his system, but he was under the influence of a nervous system depressant.
Phillips was booked into the downtown Phoenix jail. Police say he’s been placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation.
The Arizona Republic says the 39-year-old Phillips was hired with two other rookies in August 2010.
