LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A metro corrections officer is now facing charges.
Nicholas Gravatte, a corrections officer, found himself behind bars Tuesday morning after police arrested him for drunk driving and wanton endangerment.
Police say the 28-year-old was involved in a wreck near the Outer Loop and Wilshire Blvd Monday night.
They say Gravatte hit two other cars with his truck around 6:30 p.m. No one was injured in the accident.
Court records show Gravatte initially denied that he had been driving his truck, but witnesses identified him has the one behind the wheel.
According to court records, when questioned, Gravatte slurred his speech and said he "passed out and did not know what happened." He also failed a sobriety test.
"We are disappointed to learn of this incident," said Mark Bolton, Director of Louisville Metro Department of Corrections. "Officer Gravatte is on unpaid administrative leave while we conduct an internal investigation."
The LMPD Public Integrity Unit is also looking into the incident.
