Tasia Stephens Drink Drive Crash
Ms Stephens was off duty on the night of Saturday, April 25 last year when she allegedly attended the family event during the lockdown.
It is further alleged that she later failed a breathalyser test after crashing her car into a building.
The South Wales Police officer will face a misconduct hearing over the allegations that she broke lockdown rules, drove when unfit, and that being convicted of the offences amounts to discreditable conduct.
At the time of the allegations, the whole of the UK was under strict stay-at-home rules.
The alleged incident happened just one day after First Minister Mark Drakeford had announced Wales’s first lockdown exit plan.
A notice of the misconduct hearing on the police force’s website stated: “It is alleged that Pc Tasia Stephens, when off duty, on the night of 25/26 April 2020, breached Welsh Government lockdown restrictions by attending a family house party.
“That on the same night she then drove when unfit to do so, colliding her car with a building.
“Having failed a breathalyser test that night, the officer was subsequently convicted in the magistrates’ court of driving a motor vehicle when over the prescribed limit.”
The notice said that if the allegations were proven the breaches would amount to “gross misconduct that is so serious as to justify dismissal.”
The hearing will take place on Monday in Pencoed, Bridgend, but is closed to the public due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
