The former St. Joseph County Police officer arrested after allegedly driving under the influence and crashing his patrol car into a mailbox will be able to get behind the wheel.

During a hearing on Friday, Jan. 20, a judge determined Coty Hoffman can continue to drive, as long as the vehicle is equipped with an ignition interlock with a breathalyzer attached.

Hoffman was arrested after the collision in November and resigned from his job earlier this month.

He’s due back in court in March.
