Phillip Newton, Denver Police sergeant, busted for driving under the influence... again
Denver PD Sergeant Phillip Newton is in trouble, but not for police brutality. Instead, he was busted by his fellow boys in blue for driving under the influence following a Monday car crash.
For Newton, this incident likely feels like déjà vu all over again. He was reportedly arrested on suspicion of DUI and careless driving back in 2004, too.
Speaking to 9News, Newton said, "This is not a proud moment in my life" -- and no wonder, since the incident will likely cost him a suspension of between sixteen and 42 days.
Not to mention a hefty car-repair bill. Look below to see 9News' coverage of Newton's arrest.
