Baltimore County officer charged with drunk driving in Bel Air

A Baltimore County police officer was arrested in Bel Air and charged with drunk driving early Sunday morning, the Bel Air Police Department said.

Charles Bagley, an Abingdon resident, was arrested at about 2 a.m. Sunday after he was seen allegedly committing several traffic violations, including failing to stop for a red light at South Bond Street and Churchville Road, according to a BAPD news release issued Tuesday morning. Bagley was driving a Toyota SUV, police said.

Det. Sgt. Jim Lockard, a Bel Air Police spokesman, said Bagley was charged with driving under the influence, driving while impaired and consuming alcohol while operating a motor vehicle. Lockard said Bagley is either 41 or 42 years old.

Bagley is a corporal for the Baltimore County Police Department assigned to the White Marsh precinct, the department said in a statement Tuesday.

The statement said Bagley's police powers have been suspended and he will be on administrative duty, pending the outcome of the court case and an internal investigation.

The department referred all other questions to Bel Air Police.
