Indianapolis – An IMPD officer is free on bond after he was arrested for driving under the influence.

Officer David Dinsmore was off duty when he ran into a mailbox on Edgewood Avenue on the far southeast side Tuesday night. He told police he ran off the road while trying to avoid a dump truck.

He passed the alcohol test but officers though he looked impaired and put him through field tests.

Dinsmore told police he took at least two OxyContin tablets shortly before the accident. He has used the strong pain medicine for about four years for back pain. It’s unknown if he used the potent pain medicine while on duty.

Police were suspicious when they first reached the accident scene.

“When officers arrived he was apparently in the car asleep, Which drew their attention. They had him get out of the car and started talking to him. He appeared to be impaired,” said Lt. Jeff Duhamell, IMPD.

Officers noticed that Dinsmore’s speech was slow and slurred and that his eyelids were drooping.
