Off-Duty Beverly Hills Officer Crashes into House, Gets Arrested for DUI

An off-duty Beverly Hills police officer was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after crashing a pickup into a utility pole, house and retaining wall late Tuesday in Simi Valley.

The pickup, the officer's personal vehicle, came to a stop upside-down on top of the retaining wall. The crash also ruptured a natural gas line, prompting a response from utility crews early Wednesday.

"The damage was mostly contained to the retaining wall and the side of the house," said Sgt. James Buckley, of the Simi Valley Police Department. "No intrusion was made into the house."
