CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A Department of Education employee was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Sheridan while driving a state-owned vehicle.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1rqc9y8 ) 44-year-old Lachelle Brant was cited early on Sept. 18 after a Sheridan County deputy saw her abruptly switch lanes and cross out of her lane several times. Court records say her blood-alcohol level was 0.14, above the 0.08 level at which a person is considered legally intoxicated.

Motor pool fleet manager Annette Spitsbergen says Brant returned the state vehicle that weekend. Spitsbergen says she was unaware of the charge until the newspaper called.

Department of Education CEO Sam Shumway also didn’t know about Brant’s arrest, but says it’s a personnel matter and declined to comment.

The agency’s website says Brant is an early childhood education consultant who works in Cheyenne.
