YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) - A Youngstown police lieutenant and three more officers have been disciplined for helping the lieutenant’s brother skirt a potential drunken driving case.

The Vindicator (http://bit.ly/1wZi6DK ) reports that an internal police investigation recommends the suspected drunken driver be charged. Investigators located test results indicating his blood-alcohol content was above the legal limit when he was pulled over Nov. 28 for running a red light. He wasn’t cited then.

His brother, who leads the vice squad, received a 10-day unpaid suspension for intervening. The officer who made the stop and wrote a false report got a 15-day suspension, and a supervisor was suspended for five days and demoted. The officer who administered the driver’s blood-alcohol test and later disposed of the evidence ticket lost some compensatory time.
