PORTLAND, Ore. – An off-duty Portland police officer was arrested Thursday after police say he was drunk and crashed his car.
Gresham police said Sgt. James McMurray, 43, was cited for DUII, reckless driving and two counts of second-degree criminal mischief after he crashed his 2014 Jetta into a fire hydrant, fence and yard near the 3100 block of Southeast 190th Drive at about 10 a.m.
There were no injuries but police said the crash caused about $5,000 in property damage.
Police said McMurray has been cooperating throughout the investigation.
The Portland Police Bureau said McMurray, an 18-veteran, has been placed on paid administrative leave, pending the outcome of the investigation and an internal review.
