An off-duty policeman has been charged with drink-driving in Sydney’s CBD.

The driver, a 49-year-old senior constable attached to a specialist command, was stopped just after 7am on Thursday by a stationary drug and alcohol testing unit on the Bradfield Highway, Millers Point.

The driver was breath tested and allegedly returned a positive reading.

He was arrested and taken to Surry Hills Police Station where a breath analysis returned an alleged reading of 0.080.

The officer’s licence was suspended and he is due to appear at the Downing Centre Local Court on February 4, for allegedly driving with a middle range PCA.

NSW Police said the officer will be placed on restricted non-operational duties.
