Wash. Dep. Passed Out in Patrol Car, Arrested

January 02, 2014  | 

An on-duty King County (Wash) Sheriff's deputy was arrested on New Year's Eve for suspicion of being high on drugs after he was reported slumped over the wheel of his patrol car in a Newcastle parking lot, according to the Bellevue Reporter.

The sheriff's office reports the 46-year-old deputy and 15-year veteran of the department was reported "passed out at the wheel" of his patrol car by a passerby, who also stated they were unable to wake him.

Another sheriff's deputy, captain, and sergeant responded to the Starbucks parking lot at Newcastle Way and Coal Creek Parkway, where they were able to rouse the passed-out deputy and determine he was impaired by something other than alcohol, a news release states.
