Battle Creek Police officer may be charged after allegedly appearing for work under the influence


BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- Things have gone from bad to worse for a Battle Creek Police officer who now faces criminal charges after she allegedly showed up for work drunk Saturday night.

It had been initially reported that Officer Jennifer Appl was discovered to be drunk before she began her shift Saturday night. Now TV-3 is reporting that she actually began her patrol in that condition. She was called back to the station and given a breathalyzer.

State Police were called and also administered their own breathalyzer test.

Warrants have been authorized charging her with driving drunk and possessing a firearm while intoxicated, both misdemeanors.

She could be formally charged Tuesday.

Officer Appl remains on paid administrative leave.
