A former policeman who failed to charge his wife for drink-driving after testing her at the scene of an accident has failed in his bid to get his job back.
Benjamin Shannon, 29, had appealed to the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal last month after the Assistant Commissioner of Police called for his dismissal last year as a result of the incident.
