The chief of police is looking into a crash involving an off-duty police officer that occurred outside a Hagatna bar early Saturday morning. Police spokesperson officer AJ Balajadia says the incident damaged five separate vehicles. While witnesses raised concern that the officer may have been impaired, he did pass a field sobriety test.

"Chief JI Cruz takes any allegation of any impropriety from any of our officers very seriously," Balajadia told KUAM News. "The chief has requested that the officers that are involved in handling that incident submit incident reports to him to his office so he can review those."

The officer was cited for imprudent driving, unsafe backing, standing parked on the roadway, and driving other than on the right side of the roadway.
