SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah Highway Patrol lieutenant in charge of the DUI unit has chosen to retire following findings of an audit and internal affairs investigation that he had engaged in misconduct.

The Deseret News reports (http://bit.ly/1QLHiFi ) UHP officials say Lt. Brad Horne, who was placed on paid administrative leave in April, elected to retire when faced with a demotion to the position of trooper.

UHP Col. Daniel Fuhr in a July letter said that Horne had conducted traffic stops without probable cause, destroyed evidence and used his position in the patrol to secure personal loans. Another letter from a Weber County deputy attorney says the matter involving the loan was a civil issue between the two parties and evidence didn’t support criminal prosecution.
