WSPA-TV reports Cpl. Stephen McDowell was arrested Thursday for driving under the influence, less than 0.10. The state Department of Public Safety says McDowell was off-duty and driving his personal vehicle at the time of arrest.
Bond was set at $90. It was unknown if he's represented by an attorney.
Meanwhile, the department said in a statement Friday that McDowell was also fired Thursday "for improper conduct/conduct unbecoming a state employee and arrest."
McDowell had been with the department since May 2008.
