Colchester Police Complete Investigation Into Officer Charged with DUI
By Joe Gullo
COLCHESTER, Vt. - The Colchester Police Department wrapped up their internal investigation into an officer charged with DUI.
Colchester Police say Officer Jeremy Wyskiel, 36, violated the department's conformance to law and conduct unbecoming rules. A substantial discipline package has been imposed on Wyskiel.
Wyskiel is accused of driving home drunk from a bowling alley in Colchester during the early morning hours of March 24. Court documents say Wyskiel took a breath test and blew a 0.217%, which is almost three times over the legal limit of .08%
Wyskiel was on paid administrative leave until the internal investigation was completed. He has not returned to duty as he has been on sick leave since April 7. The department says they don't know when Wyskiel will return to work.
Wyskiel pleaded not guilty to one count of driving under the influence last month.
