Bail was set at $100,000 for a Metro Police officer accused of DUI and three counts of leaving the scene of an accident. 

Antonio Munoz made his initial court appearance Wednesday in Las Vegas Justice Court.

Munoz was off-duty when he was arrested Saturday by a Nevada Highway Patrol trooper. The trooper determined that Munoz had been involved in three crashes on I-15 northbound between Sahara Avenue and Charleston Boulevard prior to being pulled over.

A report shows Munoz's blood alcohol level was .128.

If Munoz does post bail, he will be required to wear an ankle bracelet.

His preliminary hearing has been set for October 3.
