BRYAN COUNTY, OK -- According to online court records a Durant Police Officer has been charged with "Driving a Motor Vehicle Under the Influence of Alcohol".

Records show that on Friday a letter was sent to 36-year-old Brandon Carbaugh notifying him of the charge. Nearly two weeks ago, OHP says, while off duty, he crashed a pickup on State Highway 91 in Bryan County. Troopers say he failed a field sobriety test and was arrested and taken to MCSO with arm and leg injuries. Authorities say he was not booked into jail because he did not receive a medical release.

At last check, Durant Police told News 12 that Carbaugh was put on paid administrative leave.
