This is a horrible story, no two ways about it.

I have to wonder if the press is sensationalizing the the sobriety test, or lack of one because he is a police officer. Would the investigating officer have issued a sobriety test to Joe Citizen?

If the Officer on the scene did not smell an alcoholic beverage on the breath of the officer or observe that his faculties were impaired then there was no reason to give a sobriety test.,2050036.story
