This is absolutely outrageous and she will still be getting the weekly pay she is entitled to, until she is found GUILTY in a court of law.

A Toronto police officer with 21 years of service has been charged with drunk driving after she crashed her vehicle on the Don Valley Parkway.
The officer, who was off duty at the time, got into an accident with another vehicle in the northbound lanes of the Don Valley Parkway, south of Eglinton Avenue, at about 5 p.m. yesterday.
Constable Tamara Rodin, 42, has been charged with impaired driving, operating a vehicle with more than 80 milligrams of alcohol in her blood and failing to comply with bail conditions.
Cst. Rodin was previously charged with robbery and disguise with intent after a Markham pharmacy was reportedly robbed of prescription drugs.
She was to appear in a Newmarket court in November for a trial on those charges. A police press release today indicated that she worked in the staff planning and community mobilization unit at police headquarters.
