LONOKE, Ark. (AP) - A Lonoke County sheriff’s deputy has been fired after officials say he drove while intoxicated while on duty.

According to department spokesman Capt. David Bufford, the 45-year-old deputy reported to work about 5 a.m. Wednesday and his sergeant noticed the smell of alcohol on his breath while talking to him around 8:30 a.m.

Authorities say the deputy was given a breathalyzer test and registered a blood alcohol content level of 0.12 percent. The deputy was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. He was released from the Lonoke County jail on bond six hours later.
