Senior garda in drink-drive probe

THE Garda Siochana Ombudsman Commission (GSOC) has launched an investigation into an incident where a senior officer knocked down a little girl while allegedly over the drink-driving limit.

Gardai were called to the scene following the incident, which happened in the Rathfarnham area of south Dublin on Monday.

The four-year-old girl had been playing on her scooter when she was knocked over by the vehicle. However, it is understood she was not badly injured.
