A police constable has been dismissed without notice after allegations of gross misconduct were proven.
A misconduct hearing, held from 11 - 13 December, heard that PC Nathan Mattison, of North-East Command Unit, was arrested for drink driving after failing a roadside breath test on 7 March.
On 22 March, PC Mattison was convicted of drink driving at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court and was disqualified from driving for 12 months, received a £100 fine, £85 court costs and £30 victim’s surcharge.
A misconduct panel found PC Mattison had breached the standards of professional behaviour in respect of ‘honesty and integrity' and 'discreditable conduct’.
He was dismissed without notice.
