MARION (AP) — A southern Illinois sheriff says the job status of one of his deputies is cloudy after he was arrested for suspected drunken driving for the second time in five years.
Williamson County Sheriff Bennie Vick says 48-year-old deputy Shaunn Curry was charged with driving under the influence. He was stopped last Friday on Illinois 13 near Marion.
Authorities say Curry was off duty in his own vehicle when he was stopped after several motorists called 911 to report a possible drunken driver.
WSIL-TV reports Curry was found guilty in 2009 of DUI related to a December 2007 wreck he had while off duty. He was sentenced to two years of conditional discharge.
Curry does not have a listed home telephone number, and it's unclear if he has an attorney.
