BLOOMINGTON, Ill. -- Bloomington Police Sergeant Troy Doza announced his retirement on Thursday, effective immediately.
Bloomington Police Department officials say that Doza's retirement will end the internal investigation related to his involvement in a DUI crash last November.
Illinois State Police arrested Doza after his car left the roadway near the intersection of Fox Creek Road and Springfield Road in Bloomington. The car hit a utility pole before overturning.
Doza was off-duty during the time of the incident. He was treated and released at OSF St. Joseph's Medical Center for minor injuries.
“As police officers, we see first-hand the devastating consequences that drinking and driving can have. It is unacceptable for any officer to engage in that type of behavior, and I will not tolerate that conduct, said Bloomington Police Chief Brendan Heffner.
Doza first appeared in court on Wednesday. His next court date is February 17.
