In a letter dated Oct. 25, Conway police Chief Jody Spradlin placed Hackett on a 30-day suspension without pay, KTHV reported. Spradlin, who scolded the officer for bringing "discredit and embarrassment" on the department, also expressed doubts that Hackett had been sober enough to drive after the incident, according to KATV.
The Little Rock Police Department said its officers weren't aware that Hackett also worked in law enforcement when they decided not to arrest him, KATV reported.
In a recent Facebook post, Hackett called the incident a "mistake," KTHV reported.
"A few weeks ago I made a huge mistake," the post read, according to news outlet. "I have apologized profusely for my mistake and accepted the consequences that came along with it. ... Please understand that mistake does not and will not define me."
