(WMC-TV) - A Memphis police officer was arrested early Monday morning after he was involved in a drunken crash, investigators say.

Roger Williams was behind the wheel around 3:15 a.m. Monday when his vehicle left the road and smashed into a concrete embankment and a fence, according to police.

No other cars were involved in the crash at American Way and Perkins.

Investigators say the 31-year-old was drunk at the time of the crash, but refused to take a breathalyzer test.

Williams has been on the police force since 2010.

He's been relieved of duty with pay until an administrative investigation is complete.
