Ada County deputy arrested on suspicion of DUI

December 31, 2018

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — An Ada County Sheriff’s deputy was placed on administrative leave after being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

KBOI reports that 44-year-old Jason Jones was pulled over by a Boise Police officer. Authorities say Jones was driving a personally-owned sports-utility vehicle the wrong way Sunday night.

After failing one sobriety test, the sheriff’s office says Jones refused to take any others.

A blood draw was used to determine if he was under the influence of alcohol and, if so, his level of impairment at the time he was pulled over. Boise Police cited Jones on a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence.

He will remain on administrative leave until the results of the toxicology report are available. It wasn’t immediately clear if Jones had an attorney.
