ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) - A former Washington County deputy charged with drunken driving has pleaded not guilty in the case after a judge ordered him to stand trial.

Jason Lynn Adams entered his plea Tuesday in Utah’s 5th District Court in St. George.

Earlier Tuesday, Judge Michael Westfall heard testimony from a state trooper and ruled there was enough evidence for a trial.

Adams is charged with misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence and failure to operate in a single lane.

He was placed on administrative leave in February after he crashed his unmarked Ford F-150 on State Highway 17 near LaVerkin. The 16-year veteran of the sheriff’s office later resigned.



The Salt Lake Tribune (https://bit.ly/1tL5UDc ) reports Adams is scheduled to go on trial in September.
