NEW ORLEANS- A key government witness in the trial of a deadly police shooting after Hurricane Katrina was arrested in suspicion of drunk driving and leaving the scene of an accident.

Police say Officer Keyalah Bell was suspended without pay after her arrest. She was booked into jail and released this morning. Bell was off duty and driving a personal vehicle when she hit a parked car and kept driving before her car broke down. She was one of the first officers to respond to Henry Glover's shooting after Hurricane Katrina nearly six years ago.

A jury convicted former officer David Warren last year of manslaughter for shooting Glover and found another former officer, Gregory McRae, guilty of burning his body.
