Officer charged with DUI: Sarah Bloomquist reports during Action News at Noon on January 15, 2018.

A police officer in Delaware has been charged with driving under the influence and endangering the welfare of a child.

26-year-old Keith Boris of Dover's police department is on administrative leave without pay.

He's been on the force for one year.

Police said Boris picked up his daughter from a daycare Thursday after leaving McGlynn's Pub and Restaurant.

He was later found passed out in the driver's seat at an intersection for "several light cycles."

The girl was unharmed and given to her mother.

Police Chief Marvin Mailey said in a statement he was grateful no one was harmed due to Boris's reckless actions.

Mailey added: "To say that I am disappointed in this incident is an understatement."
