SAN DIEGO (CNS) - In the latest investigation to hit the San Diego Police Department, an SDPD police detective was arrested in Balboa Park on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.
Karen Almos, a 16-year department veteran, allegedly was found passed out in a parked car in the 2000 block of Pan-American Plaza about 3:30 p.m. Saturday, according to SDPD public affairs.
Paramedics roused Almos, who was then arrested her on suspicion of DUI.
"There's a lot of factors that you look at to determine whether or not someone is intoxicated, whether or not they were driving while intoxicated, so they looked at all these factors, made the determination and arrested her and they booked her into jail," Lt. Kevin Mayer said.
She will be on desk duty, pending the outcome of an investigation, police said.
