Of course he thought that he was above the law and the rules didn’t apply to him. He is after all a default “Hero” simply because he wears blue. His testimony in court, the day before the incident, would have been given the weight of truth by a judge because he is a” Sworn officer of the court”. So this type of person is the type that choose to be cops? Short answer… Yes. And that will never change as long as they are responsible for their own accountability. Took a pissed off citizen to bring this guy down.
KENNER – An intoxicated NOPD officer was arrested after leading Kenner Police on a high-speed chase that ended in a fiery crash.
Fifty-three-year-old Carlos Peralta got into an argument with the clerk at a CVS Drugstore in the 800 block of West Esplanade Avenue just before midnight on November 24.
The store clerk refused to sell Peralta alcohol because he was obviously inebriated already, according to the Kenner Police Department.
The clerk called the police, and Peralta got behind the wheel of his vehicle and drove away.
Kenner Police officers caught up to Peralta’s vehicle in the 1400 block of West Esplanade, where they observed Peralta driving recklessly.
Peralta initially stopped his vehicle when ordered to do so, but then he sped away, according to the KPD.
He led police on a high-speed chase on I-10 that ended with a crash in the 5700 block of Morrison Road in New Orleans East.
The vehicle caught fire after the crash, and a 15-year-old passenger who has been described as Peralta’s relative hopped from the burning vehicle and ran to safety.
Peralta, however, refused to exit the burning vehicle, and had to be forcibly removed by arresting officers.
