Body cam shows OVI arrest of Youngstown officer
We’re learning more about the traffic stop last Friday night that landed a Youngstown police officer in some trouble.
A state trooper stopped Detective Sergeant Nicholas Bailey in Warren Township. He was eventually cited for DUI as well as having a gun with him at the time.
Troopers released body camera video Wednesday of the stop where Bailey was pulled over for driving a four-wheel all-terrain vehicle on a state roadway.
Here is part of the exchange:
Trooper: “What’s the deal? You know how many times I stop you cops. They drink, they break the law, they carry their gun on ’em. That makes no sense to me.”
Bailey said he was riding nearby trails with a couple of other people and admitted he’d been drinking.
He’s due in court again next month.
