Cop faces firing after 2nd arrest

December 28, 2011

An Indianapolis police officer has been placed on indefinite suspension without pay and faces termination after being arrested again for operating a vehicle while intoxicated. David Dinsmore was arrested Tuesday night in Johnson County after crashing his squad car while off duty. An officer at the scene said he found a bottle containing 57 pills stuffed down Dinsmore’s pants. Dinsmore, 45, pleaded guilty to operating a vehicle while intoxicated and fraud in August after a 2010 incident in which he drove his squad car into a mailbox while under the influence of painkillers.
