NEW ORLEANS - New Orleans police say they have suspended an officer accused of driving drunk in an unmarked city vehicle while off duty.

Police spokesman Remi Braden says Causeway Police pulled over 33-year-old Ryan Aucoin shortly after 3 a.m. Thursday on the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, the 24-mile-long bridge that connects the northern suburbs and the south shore of the lake. She says he was booked into the St. Tammany Parish jail on charges of careless driving and driving while intoxicated.

Braden says Aucoin was suspended without pay while the Public Integrity Bureau investigates.
