HENRICO (WRIC) – A Richmond Police detective has been arrested after police say he was driving under the influence.

Shortly after midnight on December 1, a State Trooper stopped a 2013 Volkswagen for speeding on I-64 east near the 177 mile marker in Henrico County.  
"Upon stopping the vehicle, the trooper observed an odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle," says Virginia State Police spokesman Sgt. Thomas Molnar in an email. "After performing field sobriety tests, the driver, Jack P. Larry, 32, of Richmond, was arrested without incident for driving under the influence.  Larry was charged with driving under the influence and refusal to submit to a breath test."  
A female passenger, Brooke E. Pettit, 27, of Richmond, was also arrested without incident for drunk in public. Petit is an attorney for the Richmond Commonwealth's Attorney's Office.

Richmond Commonwealth Attorney Michael N. Herring, says Pettit is "a very valued [employee]. The incident in no way reflects on her work."

Richmond Police confirm Larry is a detective and is on administrative leave.
