EAST GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - An East Grand Rapids police officer has entered a guilty plea to first offense drunk driving and leaving the scene of an accident.
Officer Nicholas Schwein entered the pleas Tuesday, Sept. 6, for an off-duty incident last month in Cannon Township. He was involved in an accident at 5 Mile Road and Pettis Avenue NE.
