New Hampshire police officer Tyler Perry, 27, allegedly killed a 21-year-old woman while driving under the influence

A New Hampshire police officer has been arrested after he allegedly killed a 21-year-old woman while driving under the influence. 

Tyler Perry, 27, has been charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated in the death of Sierra Croteau.

The Londonderry police officer told a first responder he had been drinking 'adult sodas' earlier that night. He was not on duty at the time of the crash. 

Berry was driving his pickup truck west on Route 101 in Amherst around 11.30pm last Friday. 

Witnesses told investigators he was driving erratically before the crash. 

One witness said he repeatedly kept crossing the center line and passing other vehicles.

Berry allegedly then crossed the center line again and hit Croteau's SUV head-on as she was traveling east last Friday night. Croteau died at the scene.  

The officer was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries before he was arrested and charged by police. A booking photo has not been released. 

Authorities said he appeared intoxicated at the time. Police executed a search warrant to take two blood draws but Berry refused to let them do the second one, according to WCVB

His blood alcohol level has not yet been released.

Prosecutors said Berry could still face more charges. He has been suspended with pay and the Londonberry Police Department said it will fully cooperate with the investigation. 

Croteau had been driving home after celebrating her acceptance to nursing school at her parents' house on the night of the crash.  

She had been working as a licensed nursing assistant and dreamed of one day becoming a labor and delivery nurse.  

Croteau's family said they are devastated they will never get to see her fulfill her dreams.

'We have been robbed of even walking her down the aisle on her wedding day. Or even giving us grandchildren,' her father Joseph Houle told WHDH

'This meant we will never see her again, hug her again, give her a kiss, tell her we love her, how much she means to us, how proud we are of her. We will never be able to do this.' 

Croteau's family is horrified that Berry was only suspended with pay and said they plan to fight for justice.
