Traffic cop charged with drink driving in Ipswich

A TRAFFIC cop who was allegedly caught drink driving early this morning will appear in Ipswich Magistrates Court this month.  

The 45-year-old sergeant from the Road Policing Command was off duty and driving a private vehicle when he came to the attention of police.
