SFPD sergeant must go to Alcoholics Anonymous, rehab after off-duty DUI crash

KTVU (Ch. 2)Skid marks from a crash scene in the Inner Sunset district led to the home of San Francisco police Sgt. Thomas Haymond

A San Francisco police sergeant will have to attend 90 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and stay a month in a residential treatment program as part of his sentence for a DUI collision last month in the Inner Sunset district.

Sgt. Thomas Haymond has pleaded no contest to a DUI charge in connection with an off-duty collision with a parked car near 12th Avenue and Lawton Street on Oct. 8, Assistant District Attorney Alex Bastian said Tuesday.</p>

After crashing into the car, which then struck a tree, the veteran cop reportedly drove to his home in the 1100 block of Moraga Street. Police found him there after following a trail of skid marks from the accident scene. His blood alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit at the time of his arrest, police said.

Along with AA meetings, Haymond has been placed on three years of probation, will have to serve 50 hours of community service and will spend 9 months in a program for first offenders, Bastian said.

As of Tuesday, police said, Haymond remains on administrative leave and has been reassigned to a non-patrol function until the completion of an internal investigation.
