On Friday, a Connecticut cop was charged with the death of a fellow officer in a DUI crash in Las Vegas.

According to KVVU-TV, New Haven Officer Robert Ferraro, 34, was exceeding the speed limit in a 2020 Rolls Royce with two other cops when he reportedly lost all control and ended up crashing into an occupied car parked in a residential driveway.

According to the source, the Rolls Royce then collided with power lines, landscaping, and a fire hydrant before flipping over and ejecting Joshua Castellano from the front passenger seat , who was also a New Haven officer.

Ferraro was charged with DUI causing death and reckless driving causing death or serious bodily harm. According to the station, he was being detained on $100,000 bail.

The wrecked car was apparently carrying two passengers from Texas, in addition to the three officers.

 If he makes bail, he will be placed on high-level electronic monitoring and cannot drive.

Ferraro has been put on administrative leave, per the New Haven Police Department. The department will conduct its own independent inquiry.
