Rowlett, Texas police arrested Officer Ashley N. Parmley, age 33, after someone called 911 about 2:15 a.m. to report a possible drunken driver near Highway 66 and the Bush Turnpike.
Officers found a vehicle stopped less than two miles away in the parking lot of a business in the 4300 block of Miller Road that matched the description the caller had given.
Parmley, 33, was sitting in the driver’s seat and was “showing signs of intoxication,” police said.
She was brought to the Rowlett City Jail. She faces charges of driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest.
The case is still under investigation. Bail has not been set.
Parmley is a three-year veteran of the department and is assigned to the north central patrol division.
She was placed on administrative leave.
No one is perfect, even those who are tasked to enforce our laws. We all fall short of the letter of the law. Give thanks to Christ, who lived a perfect life, and gives us His grace. Today in prayer, thank God for the law that it points us to His love and grace.
“The utility of the law is, that it convinces man of his weakness, and compels him to apply for the medicine of grace, which is in Christ.” – Augustine
