ATLANTA (AP) - A Georgia State Patrol trooper has been fired after he was accused of driving under the influence.

Georgia State Patrol said in a news release that 24-year-old Trooper Deionte McAllister was pulled over by another trooper who said he saw McAllister rev his engine and tailgate another vehicle in Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood early Saturday morning.

Police say McAllister was arrested on a DUI charge upon failing a sobriety test. He was terminated from the department on Monday.

It is unclear whether McAllister has an attorney.
