A Dallas Police Officer was arrested early Wednesday in Plano on suspicion of leaving the scene of a wreck in which a person in another vehicle was hurt, police said.

Senior Corporal David Aguilar, 35, faces charges of driving while intoxicated and failing to stop and render aid according to a Plano police report.

The wreck happened at 12:53 a.m. Wednesday near the intersection of Custer Road and Plano Parkway, the report stated.

The other driver received minor injuries in the wreck, said Lt. Andy Harvey, Dallas police spokesman.

About an hour later, Plano police stopped Aguilar, who was driving a 2008 Toyota Tacoma pickup near the intersection of Parkhaven Drive and Independence Parkway. That location is about five miles northwest of the wreck.

Aguilar is a 12-year DPD veteran who is assigned to the Northeast Patrol Division, Harvey said. He added that Aguilar has been placed on administration leave, pending the outcome of the case.

The officer was still in the Plano jail at 1:30 p.m., but bail had not yet been set, said Heather Bowden, Plano police spokeswoman.
