An Edmonton police constable has received a 60-hour work suspension without pay for drinking and driving off-the-job.

In October, Roxanne Heppner pleaded guilty to one count of impaired care and control of a motor vehicle, and was slapped with a $1,000 fine, a $300 victim surcharge and one year driving prohibition.

An agreed statement of facts included in her disciplinary hearing decision states that in July of last year, a civilian reported a suspected impaired driver driving into a parking lot near LB’s pub in St. Albert.

RCMP responded and found Heppner sleeping in the passenger seat of a damaged white Hyundai, smelling of alcohol.
