While San Diego Police Department DUI Superstar Officer Jim Zirpolo was enjoying his MADD trophy for Most DUI Arrests of the Year (2012), another San Diego Police Officer accused of drunk driving pled NOT GUILTY to California DUI charges including a reckless driving excessive speed enhancement allegation


While San Diego Police Department DUI Superstar Officer Jim Zirpolo was enjoying his MADD trophy for Most DUI Arrests of the Year (2012), another San Diego Police Officer accused of drunk driving pled NOT GUILTY to California DUI charges including a reckless driving enhancement allegation, California DUI criminal defense attorneys are told.

J. Blackford, a San Diego Police Department detective allegedly drove DUI and recklessly on December 7th while going 20 miles per hour over the posted speed limit on Princess View Drive in Allied Gardens causing a California DUI accident, lawyers claim.

  4 other San Diego Police Department cops allegedly were involved in coming to his rescue - and a possible "cover-up" - after the drunk driving crash, California DUI lawyers are told.

If the allegations are proven, the San Diego Police Officer faces a mandatory 60 days in custody under California Vehicle Code Section 23582.  His next court date is 4/11/13.  It is possible his San Diego DUI attorney could obtain a favorable plea bargain dismissing the 23582 60 day enhancement allegation for allegedly reckless driving - excessive speed.
