Dallas Police Chief David Brown fired three officers Friday, two for DWI and one for unnecessary force.
Below is a statement from the DPD on the terminations:
Officer Brandy Lindsay, #8774, was arrested for DWI on November 7, 2010 by officers from the Murphy Police Department. During a traffic stop for speeding the officers came to believe she was driving while intoxicated. A blood test showed her blood alcohol concentration to be 0.14. Officer Lindsay was assigned to the Northeast Patrol Bureau and had been on the Dallas Police Department since February 2006.
Officer Jason Rowland, #8052, was arrested for DWI on March 15, 2011 by officers from the Hickory Creek Police Department. During a traffic stop for speeding the officers came to believe he was driving while intoxicated. Officer Rowland declined to provide breath or blood specimens, but acknowledged having consumed two alcoholic drinks at a restaurant prior to the traffic stop. Officer Rowland was assigned to the Northwest Patrol Division and had been on the Dallas Police Department since July 2001.
Officer Michael Mosher, #8470, responded to a call on January 22, 2011 with other officers. During the call he reportedly used unnecessary and inappropriate force against a handcuffed prisoner and made derogatory comments to him. He also engaged in adverse conduct when he became hostile toward another officer who intervened. Officer Mosher was assigned to the Northeast patrol Division and had been with the Dallas Police Department since March 2004.
