State Trooper Fired After Drunken Driving Arrest

A North Carolina state trooper has been fired after he was arrested on a drunken driving charge.

WXII-TV reports 48-year-old Highway Patrol Sgt. C.D. Jones was taken into custody after his vehicle sideswiped an SUV in Clemmons.

Troopers say Jones was off-duty at the time and his blood-alcohol level was 0.22 percent.

The Highway Patrol says Jones was a 24-year veteran of the force and was assigned to the Winston-Salem area.

It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney and a phone listing couldn't be found.
