News Brief: UCA Officer arrested for drunk driving

The Log Cabin Democrat reported Sept. 28 that UCAPD senior officer Jeremy P. Duplessis was arrested for driving while intoxicated.

Duplessis, 30, was stopped by a Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office deputy at 11:34 p.m. Sept. 24.

The officer smelled alcohol, and Duplessis denied having drank any.
