A Jefferson Parish sheriff’s deputy was arrested early Thursday morning in New Orleans on suspicion of driving while intoxicated in his marked patrol unit, authorities said.
Kyle Miller, 29, was also booked with reckless operation of a vehicle, according to Orleans Parish jail records.
Jefferson Parish Sheriff Joseph Lopinto fired Miller, a four-year veteran of the department, on Thursday afternoon. Miller had been assigned to the 3rd Patrol District on the West Bank.
“I was informed by NOPD that an arrest was made last night of one my deputies for DUI,” Lopinto said. “I expect better out of my deputies. I’m not going to tolerate it, and he was terminated.” https://www.nola.com/news/crime_police/article_d4122352-b1d3-11ea-a1d7-dbe9fe1bb533.html
