Cedar City • A Cedar City police officer has resigned after he was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence in his patrol car while off-duty and leaving the scene of an accident.

Cedar City Police Chief Bob Allinson told The (St. George) Spectrum Friday that Officer Jed Imlay resigned two weeks after his June 2 arrest.

Investigators say the 9-year force veteran was off duty when he allegedly hit a wall with his car near the Little League Baseball Complex about 7 p.m. just after witnesses say he had dropped a child off at the field.

Beaver County Attorney Von Christiansen enhanced Imlay's DUI charge on Friday to a class A misdemeanor due to allegations he had a child with him. He's scheduled to appear Aug. 5 before 5th District Judge Keith Barnes.
