A deputy from one Central Florida county found himself behind bars for allegedly driving while intoxicated on a local highway.
NBC affiliate WFLA-TV reports the incident took place Saturday morning in Hillsborough County, when Deputy Seth Morozowski was arrested just before 3 a.m. on a charge of DUI.
The 28-year-old, who has been with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office for nine years and serves as a K-9 deputy, was stopped along part of Interstate 4 in the outside shoulder when a Florida Highway Patrol trooper pulled up behind him.
Morozowski failed a field sobriety test and was transported to a local jail, where he registered a blood alcohol content of nearly three times the legal limit. He is suspended with pay pending termination proceedings.
