SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

A Saginaw policeman is in trouble with the law -- and the case may involve the state's "super drunk" category.

Acting Saginaw Police Chief Brian Lipe confirms that Saginaw Officer David Rocha was pulled over in July for drinking and driving. No accident occurred at the time of the DWI.

Rocha was pulled over in Tuscola County and authorities confirm that he had a blood alcohol content level of .22. The legal limit in Michigan is .08.

He will be in court on October 2 in Tuscola County. Authorities said Rocha remains on active duty in Saginaw where he is doubled up with another officer while covering his beat.
