    PITTSBURGH - A Pittsburgh police officer accused of showing up for work drunk waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday and will stand trial.

    Authorities arrested officer Vernon Gibson on DUI charges in December after a sergeant claimed Gibson smelled of alcohol when he got to work.

    Investigators said Gibson’s blood-alcohol level was well above the legal limit. He’s been on administrative leave since his arrest.
