HOPKINSVILLE, KY (WSMV) -

A veteran officer with the Hopkinsville Police Department, who recently rescued a man from a burning car, was arrested late Saturday night on drunken driving charges.

Sgt. John Thompson, 39, was arrested by his fellow officers around 11:30 p.m.

Thompson, who was off-duty, attempted to leave a parking lot on Fort Campbell Boulevard and ran into some barriers, according to a report.

He was recently one of four police officers to help pull a man from a burning car on North Drive earlier this month.

Thompson has been suspended with pay. He's been with the department since 1996.
