An Arapahoe County deputy sent home on January 3 of last year for being visibly drunk on duty was convicted of DUI and another misdemeanor Friday afternoon, the 18th Judicial District Attorney's Office announced.
Former deputy Jeffery Vincent was also found guilty of prohibited use of a weapon (having a weapon while on duty and drunk) while transporting an inmate from jail to court back in January of 2017.
The 45-year-old was ticketed on suspicion of DUI and then suspended without pay, according to Julie Brooks, spokesperson for the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office.
Vincent started his shift on January 3 of last year and another deputy immediately smelled the alcohol on his breath and notified a superior. That superior then questioned Vincent, realizing that the man had driven to work drunk and transported a prisoner to court also while drunk.
The deputy was then booked and released. He'd been with the department since 1999.
He reportedly had a blood alcohol content level of 0.081.
Vincent will be sentenced on February 1 at 9 a.m.
