Sterling Heights cop charged in drunken driving crash

The Detroit News

An off-duty Sterling Heights officer has been arraigned for driving with a blood alcohol level more than three times the legal limit.

Jamie Dubay, 39, of Sterling Heights, was given a $5,000 bond at a hearing Wednesday in 41A District Court. His next court date has not been set.

Police say Dubay was arrested after an investigation into a single-vehicle crash April 22 near Clinton River Road and Tonabee in Sterling Heights.

Dubay was hospitalized with injuries from the crash of his 2012 Dodge Ram pickup.

The Macomb County Sheriff’s Office investigated the crash and said the pickup’s driver had a blood alcohol content of 0.27 percent at the time. The legal BAC limit for drivers in Michigan is 0.08 percent.

The Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office charged Dubay with operating with a high BAC.
