WILMINGTON, NEW HANOVER COUNTY -

Police say an off-duty Fayetteville Police officer has been charged with driving while impaired in Wilmington.

Wilmington Police said an officer stopped 32-year-old Kevin Smith around 1:10 a.m. Sunday and investigators notified police in Fayetteville as soon as they determined Smith was a law enforcement officer.

Smith has been placed on administrative leave and an internal investigation will also be conducted.

A phone listing for Smith couldn't be found and it wasn't known if he had a lawyer.
