FORT WORTH (AP) - A Fort Worth police officer who already had a driving while intoxicated charge pending when he was arrested in the fall on suspicion of drunken driving has been fired.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that according to a disciplinary letter filed with the Civil Service Commission, Zebadiah Rosado’s termination was effective Jan. 18. Rosado has appealed his firing.

The letter says lab results taken after he was stopped in Fort Worth in October showed a blood alcohol concentration of 0.10, above the legal limit of 0.08.

At the time, Rosado was on limited duty and in a plainclothes position while awaiting the resolution of a DWI charge resulting from his arrest in July 2011 in North Richland Hills.

Attorneys for Rosado did not immediately return calls Friday.
