NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Two New Orleans police officers are on emergency suspension after their arrest in separate DWI traffic incidents.

The department, in a news release, said Officer Orlynthia Miller and Officer Dylen Pazon each face charges of DWI.

Miller, a 19-year veteran, was off-duty and driving her personal vehicle around 2:09 a.m. Saturday on Interstate 10 eastbound when she apparently hit someone from behind. Her car veered off the highway, went through a fence and stopped on a service road.

Miller was arrested after a breath test was positive for alcohol over the legal limit.

Then around 3:54 a.m., 11-year veteran officer Pazon was stopped for speeding while driving off-duty in his personal vehicle on the Causeway Bridge. He also was cited for careless operation and no proof of insurance.
