LIVERPOOL, N.Y. (AP) - A Syracuse police officer has been charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest.

The charges against patrolman Ty Cogan stem from a traffic stop last month in the village of suburban Liverpool.

Court records show Cogan was initially stopped around 8:30 p.m. on Dec. 19 for driving without headlights on.

Onondaga County Chief Assistant District Attorney Chris Bednarski confirmed that Cogan then was charged with misdemeanor criminal mischief and harassment, and after further investigation was charged with misdemeanor aggravated drunken driving, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct.

The Post-Standard of Syracuse (https://bit.ly/1BMxaEa ) reports that Bednarski declined to say what Cogan allegedly did to physically resist arrest.

Cogan has won multiple awards for his police work.
