A Memphis police officer is out of jail after he was arrested and charged with driving under the influence.

Officer Terence Dabney was arrested just before 4 Sunday morning after a 2-car crash on East Parkway South.  

Memphis police have confirmed Dabney was driving an unmarked city car at the time of the crash.

According to an affidavit, Dabney spoke to responding officers with slurred speech and had glossy and bloodshot eyes.

Officers spoke with a witness who said Dabney fell from his car while exiting and that he could barely walk.

The driver of the other vehicle was found to be at fault for the accident and cited for Improper Right Turn and will be in court in September.

The affidavit states Officer Dabney refused BAC testing.

Dabney was taken to the hospital in non-critical condition after he complained of head pain before he was taken to jail.

Officer Dabney is now on administrative leave with pay pending the outcome of the investigation. Dabney has been with MPD since 1999.

Dabney was released on $1000 bail and will be in court Monday morning.
