WFPD Investigation Reveals Officer Under Influence During Deadly Crash

The Wichita Falls Police Department released its investigation into Officer Calvin Ealey's one vehicle accident Friday afternoon.
     Lab reports indicate Ealey's blood alcohol level to be 0.15 at the time of the accident. 
     Officials believe this along with him being an inexperienced rider, are considered as factors contributing to this accident. 
     Officer Ealey crashed his motorcycle around 3:20 a.m. Sunday, September 27th at the corner of Kemp Boulevard and Call Field Road.
     He was not wearing a helmet.


     Wichita Falls Police Chief Manuel Borrego released the following statement:

Calvin made a careless decision to drive that evening with tragic results. With that said, I would hope that his contribution to protecting this city while assigned to the dangerous positions as a Gang Task Force Officer and SWAT team member, as well as his volunteerism with youth groups, are not overshadowed by this one imprudent event. He served his community and this department faithfully and honorably as an Officer. We continue to pray for his wife and children.

The WFPD has always been an advocate for not drinking and driving and always wearing a helmet while operating a motorcycle.
