A Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Officer was arrested while driving while impaired but not in Charlotte, he was driving out of town.  Officer Derric Entwistle was charged with DWI by the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office while driving in Jacksonville, N.C.  Entwistle is being placed on administrative assignment pending the outcome of the investigation.

“It is always disheartening when I learn that one of our officers has violated the very laws that we are sworn to uphold,” CMPD chief Johnny Jennings said. “However, professional accountability is a priority for the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, and our officers are expected to maintain this standard at all times.”

This investigation is still going on and is still active.
