A Highway Patrol trooper who works in Wilson County is off the job after his arrest Friday for drunk driving.
Police charged Trooper John Fogg with DWI Friday after his personal vehicle was involved in a crash with another vehicle on the Durham Freeway.
Police say the 40-year-old Fogg had a blood-alcohol content of .17, more than twice the legal limit.
Fogg was off-duty when the accident happened.
The Highway Patrol says Fogg began with the patrol in August 2007.
An internal investigation into the arrest is underway and Fogg has been relieved of his duties pending the outcome of that investigation.
