PRAGUE (Reuters) - A Czech police officer faces charges of driving while drunk and smashing at least 51 cars parked on a street in Prague, a police spokeswoman said on Czech Television.

Police arrested the officer as he tried to drive away, CTK news agency said. No injuries were reported.

Media reported the officer was on leave pending a court decision on a separate incident last year.
