Toronto Police Officer Charged With Drunk Driving

A Toronto Police officer has been charged with driving under the influence after getting into a collision yesterday. The officer was also accused of armed robbery almost a year ago.
The accident happened Tuesday on the Don Valley Parkway around 5 p.m. She was not on duty at the time of the accident.

When the police took the woman to the station for a breath test she scored over the legal limit.

Constable Tamara Rodin, 42, has served the Toronto Police Department for 21 years. She is now being held until her court appearance Thursday. She has been charged with with impaired driving, operating a vehicle with more than 80 milligrams of alcohol in her blood and failing to comply with bail conditions.

In December 2007 she was charged with robbery after a Pharmacy was reportedly robbed in Markham. Then, a woman walked into a drug store at 16th Avenue and Main Street telling the pharmacist she had a gun. The suspect demanded drugs which the pharmacist handed over before the woman fled the scene.

She was scheduled for trial on those charges in November.

Since her arrest in 2007 she has been placed on “light duties.”
