A North Charleston police officer has been placed on administrative leave after she was charged with driving under the influence following a wreck in her cruiser early Monday.
Summerville Magistrate Court officials said 29-year-old Christina Mask was granted a personal recognizance bond on Monday and released from the Dorchester County Detention Center shortly afterwards.
South Carolina Highway Patrol officials said Mask was driving drunk around 1 a.m. Monday on McMakin Road in Jedburg when she ran off the road and hit a driveway culvert. She was traveling east, troopers said.
“My wife called me and she said she heard an explosion out front,” said a man who owns the home where the officer’s car crashed. He did not want to be identified.
Troopers said Mask was wearing her seatbelt and was not injured. She was not on duty at the time of the wreck. According to court documents, her blood-alcohol level was recorded at .17, more than twice the legal limit.
Mask was charged with DUI and open container.
North Charleston police spokesman Spencer Pryor said Mask has been placed on administrative leave without pay, pending the outcome of the investigation. Pryor said she has been with the department since 2009.
