INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - UPDATE: Police say Officer Matt Elam wrecked his patrol car last year, but didn't report it. Investigators say he was driving drunk at the time.
Friday night, we learned two members of the swat team are now on inactive status, pending the investigation.
Police won't say how the two other officers may be involved.
Officer Elam is currently suspended without pay. The chief has recommended he be terminated.
We'll continue to follow this story and bring you updates as they become available.
The prosecutor's office has opened a grand jury investigation of another IMPD officer. It's a second drunk driving case.
Officer Matthew Elam is accused of driving drunk and wrecking his patrol car. We've learned that Elam has been under some personal and professional stress.
The 18-year veteran of the force patrols the streets of downtown, but not during the day as downtown employees stroll to work and lunch. Elam works in the middle of the night when the drunks are leaving bars, and his neighbors say over the years he has often shown evidence of a hard night on the job.
"He was hurt a lot. I ask him what had happened, and he'd say it would be something downtown with somebody he was arresting or something," said Don Winter, Elam's neighbor.
No one answered when we went to the officer's home, but neighbors had plenty to say. They told us Elam's marriage is on the rocks, and he moved out earlier this year. Neighbors see him only occasionally now when he comes to get the kids.
"He pulls in and he either waves or he don't wave. And he used to come in here and talk to me all the time. But he don't even stop and talk any more," said Winter.
Did the tensions of work and home lead to an incident that resulted in a criminal investigation?
This weekend, public safety director Frank Straub told 24-Hour News 8 that we'd likely learn about another investigation by the middle of the week. We've learned details a bit sooner than that.
24-hour news 8 has learned that Elam allegedly drove drunk, wrecked his squad car, and left the scene. When we told his neighbors about the investigation, they were not surprised.
"I never noticed him drunk. I just knew he drank," said Winter.
We've learned the officer went to extraordinary measures to cover up the accident. Multiple sources confirm he took his wrecked squad car to a private auto body shop for repairs in the hopes superiors wouldn't find out.
Police and prosecutors won't comment on a pending grand jury investigation. IMPD leaders won't comment until the prosecutor has completed its investigation.
Correction: WISHTV.com originally reported that the officer in question was on-duty at the time of the crash. This information has not been confirmed and not believed to be true.
The case is separate from that of Officer David Bisard , who stands accused of being drunk when he crashed into three people on motorcycles, killing one and injuring two more earlier this month.
