HAMILTON COUNTY, Ind. — A Greenfield police officer was arrested by officers with the Fishers Police Department Sunday morning for operating while intoxicated.
Around 1 a.m. on Sunday, June 18, a Fishers Police Officer observed a white passenger car driving with a missing headlight and driving dangerously between lanes around 96th Street and Olio Road.
The officer proceeded to conduct a traffic stop to investigate. The driver, identified as Greenfield Police Department Officer Nichole Gilbert, was then arrested and taken to the Hamilton County Jail on suspicion of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
