TUCSON, Ariz. -- This weekend, TPD joined a nationwide coordinated crackdown on impaired driving.

It runs from the beginning of the school year through Labor Day.  More officers were on the roads and DUI checkpoints were set up at strategic points around town.

On Saturday morning around 3:00 A.M., TPD's DUI crackdown netted one of their own.

Two year veteran officer Stacey Morrison-Wheeler was arrested for DUI while off-duty after rear-ending a car near the I-10 frontage road at West Silverlake Road.
