BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A Baton Rouge police officer, who resigned after crashing his police car into one of the LSU lakes while taking a woman on a late-night, off-duty ride, can expect a hefty bill.

Police say Byron S. Boudreaux, the former officer, will be charged for the totaled police unit and the equipment that was ruined when the car spun off East Lakeshore Drive and plunged into University Lake in September.

Boudreaux resigned in October amid an internal investigation into the crash.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1Hp0DWE ) the department hasn’t finished calculating the total cost of the bill that will be sent to Boudreaux,

Another former officer, Alec Pirie, who resigned in early December during an internal investigation, also was billed $120 recently for damage done to his cruiser before he quit.
