SAN DIEGO (AP) - A San Diego police detective has pleaded guilty to drunken driving charges after crashing his patrol car into a roadside utility box.

The U-T San Diego reports Detective Jeffrey Blackford faces up to six months in jail when he is sentenced Monday.

The 11-year department veteran was driving an unmarked vehicle in December when he lost control and slammed into a utility box.

Court records show Blackford called several of his officer friends after the accident, delaying the launch of a formal investigation.

The district attorney's office is reviewing the actions of four other officers who were called to the scene.
