FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A Frederick police officer charged with driving under the influence told authorities he took a sleeping pill and drank hard liquor before getting behind the wheel.

That’s according to an incident report obtained by The Frederick News-Post.

A sheriff’s deputy says in the report he detected a strong odor of alcohol coming from the officer, Robert Pierce, and that the
officer’s eyes appeared glassy and bloodshot.

Pierce was suspended after his arrest last month. Authorities say he struck a guardrail and didn’t report the crash. He was
charged with driving under the influence and other offenses.

His attorney tells the newspaper the incident report doesn’t tell the whole story and that there are circumstances he hopes will exonerate his client.
