A West Virginia State Police officer has been charged with a DUI, but the most ironic part of the arrest was the fact that the Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputy was in a Drug Task Force vehicle at the time.
Investigators from the West Virginia State Police have confirmed the report this week, acknowledging that the officer was driving intoxicated and was in fact driving a drug task force vehicle.
Lieutenant Michael Baylous explains that Deputy Brandon Woofter had been pulled over in the task force vehicle.
Baylous explains that Woofter was arrested but then was released on bond shortly after.
Local NEWS9 found out from Sheriff Ralph Fletcher that the deputy was “placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of investigations and legal proceedings.”
