One of the many drivers stopped for suspected drunk driving over the holidays was a Lewis County sheriff's deputy.
The sheriff's office says a state trooper stopped and arrested deputy Christopher P. Fulton, 31, just after midnight on Saturday Jan. 4 while southbound on I-5 in Chehalis.
Fulton was off-duty, driving his own car.
Sheriff Steve Mansfield is conducting an internal investigation. He issued a statement saying he's "extremely embarrassed, upset and disappointed."
Fulton was placed on administrative leave, which is standard protocol.
