A Baltimore County Police Department captain was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated early Sunday after he was stopped on Interstate 95 in Virginia.
Lucy Caldwell, a spokeswoman for the Virginia State Police, said Capt. John A. Spiroff was driving north about 1:30 a.m. in Prince William County when he was pulled over for "suspicion of DWI." Caldwell said she did not know any other details of the incident or Spiroff's blood-alcohol content when he was stopped.
At the time of his arrest, Spiroff was commander of the Wilkens Precinct. He is credited with implementing a two-year program that drastically reduced crime in the Winters Lane neighborhood of Catonsville.
