Not a good career move

This past Friday night, Harris County Sheriff's Deputy Murray Campbell was stopped by an off-duty DPS trooper in Montgomery County (Texas) and arrested for driving while intoxicated. Deputy Campbell, still in uniform, was seen driving at a high rate of speed and swerving in his patrol car just a few blocks from his home.

Campbell declined to perform police coordination exercises at the scene and later declined  to provide a breath specimen. The Montgomery County District Attorney's Office then sought, and got, a search warrant to for a forcible blood draw.

If the blood test indicates that Campbell had an alcohol concentration of .08 or greater, he will face termination. Campbell has been with the department for 17 years.
