Troy police officer charged in drunk driving case

(WXYZ) - The release of  dash cam video shows the arrest of an off-duty Troy police officer.

A pickup driven by Officer Candace Laforest ended up in the median on Big Beaver near Rochester Road January 18.

Police say she refused a breathalyzer.

But we're told a test hours later revealed a blood alcohol level of .27, more than three times the legal limit.

Laforest is charged under Michigan's  "super drunk" driving law.

The 9-year  veteran pleaded not guilty and is on leave from the Troy Police Department.
