An off-duty Elizabeth police sergeant involved in a crash over the weekend has

been charged with drunken driving.

According to reports, Sgt. Tracy O. Finch was driving his Chevy Tahoe on Magnolia Avenue at around 1 a.m. when he allegedly struck and pushed a parked vehicle into a second parked car.

A breathalyzer test performed at the scene showed Finch had a blood-alcohol level of 0.13, which is over the legal limit of 0.08.

There were no immediate reports of injuries as a result of the crash.

The case was transferred to Linden Municipal Court  Monday, due to a conflict of interest.
