APOPKA, FLORIDA: A 25-year-old Florida police officer, Oscar Mayorga, was caught driving drunk while on duty after his colleagues found him swerving down the street in a police cruiser. The alcohol level found in his body was five times over the legal limit, according to the authorities. He is now suspended indefinitely from duty without pay. This incident happened on July 4 after a local resident called the cops after he witnessed Mayorga create havoc by running his car through stop signs. He was "all over the road," said the resident.

Mayorga is a five-year police veteran and worked for Apopka Police Department. In his slurry speech, he told his colleagues that he was on his way to work and was not feeling well, cops said. The 25-year-old has confessed to drinking three tall boys and was scheduled to work a shift at his local police department that evening. He allegedly said that he'd be fine as long as he left a six-hour gap between having drinks and starting his shift.

The dramatic bodycam footage which was later released by the Eustis Police department, shows drunk-eyed Mayorga being interrogated by the cops. He was then put onto a stretcher and taken away by ambulance to a nearby hospital for medical treatment. The responding officer spotted an open beer can in the cruiser’s center console and caught a heavy whiff of booze coming from inside the car. He had allegedly forgotten about the open beer can in the center cup holder that the other officers spotted.

Initially, Mayorga claimed that he was not drinking and took pain medication for his pains. But later he confessed to drinking. "There's an open container of alcohol in your vehicle," said the cops. "Have you been drinking at all today?" "That's, no... that's maybe three days old," said the officer, slurring his words. "Okay. I [can] smell the alcohol coming from your breath." When officers asked if he wanted to go to the hospital, the tattooed officer said "not really, but... if you guys could take care of me right now..." then he trailed off.
