A Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer was arrested and charged with driving while impaired early Wednesday.

Officer Aubrey Guldager has been placed on “paid administrative assignment” pending the outcome of criminal and internal investigations, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department spokesman Officer Rob Tufano said.

CMPD’s DWI Task Force arrested Guldager about 2 a.m. on Woodlawn Road at General Pershing Drive, Tufano said.

Guldager was hired by the department on Jan. 25, 2010, and was assigned to the North Tryon Division.

“DWI is an extremely dangerous offense and something we as an organization will not tolerate,” police Chief Rodney Monroe said in a statement. “The CMPD will continue to hold our officers to the highest standards and accountable for their actions.”
