CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer was arrested early Saturday morning for driving while impaired.
Pineville police charged Officer Nicholas Ivy-Brooks with DWI and failure to stop at a red light.

Officials said Ivy-Brooks was hired in October 2018 and is working as a patrol officer in the Central Division. He is still under CMPD's one-year probationary period after they are sworn in.
