BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Battle Creek police officer pleaded no contest to drunk driving charges Wednesday.
William Gensch entered the plea in Calhoun County to a charge of operating a vehicle while under the influence of liquor.
The charges stem from a crash last summer, while Gensch was off-duty.
Prosecutors claim his blood-alcohol level was four times the legal limit when he crashed into several mailboxes in Bedford Township.
The no contest plea means Gensch will likely be fined and have his driver's license suspended.
Last summer, he was suspended from the Battle Creek police force for 20 days.
