OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma state trooper who was arrested in July for driving under the influence of alcohol has resigned.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the agency accepted a letter of resignation from Trooper Joshua Davies on Tuesday - the day before a pre-termination hearing had been scheduled.

Davies was arrested in Sequoyah County for DUI while on duty after he crashed an Oklahoma Highway Patrol sport utility vehicle on U.S. Highway 59 near Sallisaw. Troopers said he showed signs of intoxication - and later registered a 0.26 blood alcohol concentration on a breath test, more than three times the legal limit of 0.08.

OHP Chief Ricky Adams says in a statement that Davies’ actions were “an egregious breach of the standard of conduct demanded by our profession.”
