A Montreal police commander has been convicted of drunk driving, fined $1300 and barred from driving for a year.
It was restaurant workers who called 9-1-1 when Estelle Landry rolled out of a boozy retirement party for a colleague last April.
Patrol officers eventually tracked the commander's car to her house, where her husband at first denied she was home. When she did come to the door, the officers noted that she appeared impaired.
Although no breathalyser was administered, Landry pleaded guilty to drunk driving.
Landry must now face the force's disciplinary committee, where firing is not an automatic response to this kind of conviction.
