HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- On Friday morning, former Harrisonburg police officer Bryan Horowitz pleaded no contest to a DUI charge against him.
Over the next 12 months, Horowitz will have to participate in the Virginia Alcohol Safety Action Program and complete 200 hours of community service.
In August 2015, Horowitz will return to court to see if he has completed the stipulations listed above.
Horowitz also will have to pay court costs and have his driver's license suspended for at least six months.
In May, Horowitz was pulled over after officers say he was driving more than 15 miles per hour over the speed limit in Broadway. The officer who responded saw Horowitz trying to switch places with another passenger in the car, according to a police report. It also stated that when the officer walked up the car, he could see an open beer bottle in one of the cup holders.
Horowitz is also facing a charge for refusing to take a breathalyzer test. On Friday, a hearing dealing with the charge was continued until October 24.
