The New Orleans police officer that wrecked his vehicle into an unmarked Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office police car had been fired from the NOPD in 1977, according to a report on WWLTV.com.

Woodrow Wilson Stewart, 72, who was uninjured in the car accident, was arrested and booked on DWI, reckless operation of a motor vehicle, vehicular negligent injuring and not wearing a seat belt.

In 1977, while Stewart was still a NOPD recruit, he was fired for showing up at the training fireing range with alcohol on his breath. A few months later, Stewart was hired by the University of New Orleans as a university police officer.
