Oklahoma Highway Patrol arrests fellow officer for DUI

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla._The Oklahoma Highway Patrol has confirmed the arrest of a state trooper which occurred Thursday, July 3rd, 2014, in Sequoyah County.

At approximately 4:30 PM on Thursday, OHP officials received reports of a single vehicle collision involving an OHP patrol vehicle and boat, located approximately 3/4 mile west of U.S. Highway 59 on Applegate Cove Road south of Sallisaw.

State Troopers arrived to find a collision involving a marked OHP SUV towing a Patrol vessel and being driven by Trooper Joshua Davies. Trooper Davies showed signs of intoxication and was immediately arrested for suspicion of DUI by Troopers on the scene. Arresting troopers later administered a routine state breath test where Davies registered over the legal limit.

"It is an emotionally draining situation when an officer finds himself in a position that he must arrest one of his own. Our Troopers displayed professionalism in administering their duties during this unfortunate event. This individual was immediately arrested by state troopers on the scene and charged with DUI in compliance with state statute. This type of behavior will not be tolerated under any circumstance", stated Chief of Patrol Colonel Ricky Adams.

Davies was arrested by troopers and booked at the Sallisaw Police Department. He has been with the OHP for eight years and has been placed on routine administrative leave pending the results of an internal investigation.
