A Metro police officer has been decommissioned after being arrested for DUI Saturday night.
Officer Wesley Terry, 33, is under administrative investigation by the police department.
According to police, Terry was among several other motorists who were stopped on Briley Parkway near Two Rivers Parkway late Saturday night due to a car fire.
A Metro Parks officer, who was later directing traffic around the disabled vehicle, allegedly found Terry asleep behind the wheel with his driver’s door open. A DUI officer responded and performed field sobriety tasks, which police said indicated Terry was impaired.
Terry is free on $1,000 bond. He graduated from the Metro Training Academy in December 2005 and was assigned to the Specialized Investigations Division.
