Little Rock - An undercover Little Rock police officer was suspended for 30 days after being arrested for drunken driving and trying to get out of it by asking for "professional courtesy."
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, using records it obtained through a public disclosure request, says detective Russell C. Littleton completed his suspension in January. The newspaper says the 35-year-old also lost the privilege of taking an unmarked police truck home at night and had to have an interlock installed on the truck.
Littleton is an 11-year department veteran assigned to a U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives task force. He was arrested in August 2008 by Bryant police, who say he tried to talk his way out of being arrested.
