Scottsboro police officer suspended for public intoxication

SCOTTSBORO, AL (WAFF) -

Scottsboro Police had one of their own arrested for public intoxication.

It happened over the weekend in the town of Stevenson.

The arrest came just two months after four officers were suspended for illegally using and distributing steroids.

Neither chief from Stevenson or Scottsboro would release any details about the incident. However, reports obtained by WAFF 48 News revealed the officer was arrested with an underage 19-year-old girl also charged with public intoxication and a 22-year-old woman who faces DUI charges.

Arrest reports show Scottsboro Police Officer Tracey Law Goff was arrested by Stevenson Police around 2:40 Sunday morning on Highway 72. The reports show the females were also arrested at the same location listing Highway 72. It's not known if Officer Goff was in the 2005 Pontiac Bonneville that was stopped and the driver cited for driving under the influence.

Like two of the officers in the steroids situation, Mayor Potter said Goff was suspended Tuesday morning without pay for three shifts.

Goff is due in Stevenson Municipal Court on March 6th.

We'll continue digging to bring you more details in the case as we learn them.
