Highway Patrol Fires Trooper Charged With DWI

A spokesman for the state Highway Patrol says a first sergeant has been dismissed after being charged with driving while impaired.

Patrol spokesman Lt. Everett Clendenin said 41-year-old First Sgt. John B. Warren, a nine-year patrol veteran, was dismissed Wednesday.

Warren was charged with DWI last month after Nash County sheriff's deputies were called to a domestic dispute near Nashville.

Authorities said his blood-alcohol level was .13. The legal limit for driving in North Carolina is .08.
