A former Des Moines police who is trying to get back his job faces a drunken-driving charge.

West Des Moines police say 28-year-old Mersed Dautovic was arrested Saturday after he was found passed out in his vehicle.

Dautovic lost his job in June 2009, accused of using excessive force during a traffic stop in 2008.

Dautovic filed a grievance, and the Des Moines Civil Service Commission ruled last year that Dautovic should be reinstated.

The city is appealing that decision.

Dautovic faces the OWI charge and one for carrying a concealed weapon with a permit.
