A Seattle police officer who shot a local attorney after being attacked by a group of men in downtown Seattle three years ago was arrested last week in Grays Harbor County and charged with drunken driving.
Officer Zsolt Dornay, 40, and his 33-year-old brother, Dustin Dornay, were arrested just after midnight on July 26 on suspicion of driving their motorcycles in Ocean Shores while under the influence of alcohol, according to the State Patrol.
According to Whitcomb's statement, the officer, a 15-year veteran who is a detective assigned to the Criminal Investigations Bureau, has been placed on administrative reassignment pending the outcome of the investigation. The statement does not say what his current duties are.
The brothers were arrested after performing field-sobriety tests, Williams said. They were taken to the Ocean Shores Police Department and later released, he said.
Officer Dornay agreed to breath tests, which registered 0.149 and 0.172 percent blood alcohol, according to the citation filed in Grays Harbor County District Court. The legal limit is 0.08 percent.
In June 2006, Officer Dornay was seriously injured in a late-night altercation in Post Alley near Pike Place Market that ended when he shot a man
Dornay, who had just gotten off duty and was meeting friends, was revving his motorcycle and slowly driving through Post Alley when he was confronted by an inebriated woman. The woman knocked over Dornay's bike, and he slammed her into a garage door. Then a group of men attacked Dornay.
He was pushed down, kicked and stomped before he fired into the crowd, wounding local attorney Jim Walker, who was the employer of the inebriated woman.
The King County Prosecutor's Office eventually decided not to file criminal charges against anyone involved in the incident.
