The suspended Detroit police officer who was arrested this weekend suspected of driving drunk has been suspended from the department after other serious charges were brought against her last year.

Police tell FOX 2's Erika Erickson Officer Dana Bond was driving off-duty near Plymouth Road and Memorial Street Sunday afternoon when she turned in front of another vehicle, causing an accident. No one was seriously hurt. Police say Bond tried to leave the scene.

She has been suspended from the department indefinitely and without pay since November 2013, when police say she was charged with two counts of misdemeanor retail fraud.

The day of the accident police say her blood alcohol level was a 0.26, almost three times the legal limit.

Police say she will be arraigned on charges of drunken driving and trying to flee the scene later this week, and she awaits her next retail fraud preliminary exam later this month.
