A Colorado Springs police officer arrested on drug charges will be in court Wednesday.

Officer Jeffrey Warkocz is accused of "obtaining a controlled substance by fraud or deceit." Court papers say he became addicted to pain medication after a shoulder injury.

Warkocz was taken into custody on June 24. He is now on administrative leave with pay.

"The arrest of an officer not only impacts the department but also the community we serve. Please be reassured that the investigation is conducted with the same integrity and the arrest is carried out in the same manner as all of our investigations," Police Chief Peter Carey said in a news release.

We'll let you know what happens in court.
