IOWA CITY (AP) -  An Iowa City Police Department officer is on paid administrative leave following accusations he was drunk while driving a vehicle earlier this month.

   North Liberty police arrested 39-year-old Carlos Trevino Jr. after receiving a report of a person appearing to be passed out in a vehicle's driver seat at an intersection on Feb. 10.

   Officers say Trevino had blood-shot and watery eyes, slurred speech and smelled of alcohol. A police complaint says Trevino had a blood alcohol content of 0.197. The legal limit in Iowa is 0.08.

   Trevino has been charged with first offense drunken driving. Iowa City Police Sgt. Scott Gaarde says Trevino will be on leave until an internal investigation is completed. It wasn't immediately clear if Trevino has an attorney.
