WARREN, R.I. (WPRI) — A Warren police officer accused of driving under the influence was formally arraigned on Friday.
Police say off-duty Patrolman Adam Floor, 25, of Bristol, was driving on Metacom Avenue early Sunday morning when he went off the road, hit a utility pole, and struck the porch of a house before coming to a stop.
No one was injured as a result of the crash.
Prosecutors say police found a Glock 43 semi-automatic pistol inside of his vehicle at the time of the crash.
The weapon was a person one, and not police issued, according to Warren Police Chief Roy Borges.
No plea was entered on a felony charge of Carrying a Weapon While Under the Influence of Liquor, and a misdemeanor count of Driving Under the Influence, first offense.
Police said earlier this week Floor refused to submit a chemical test, and his blood alcohol content at the time of the crash was still listed as unknown in court Friday morning.
The judge set personal recognizance at $5,000, with the condition he report to pre-trial services.
Borges says Floor is currently on administrative leave with pay.
Floor is due in Providence Superior Court on Sept. 24.
