Police officers are tasked to enforce the law so we can assume that they have extensive knowledge regarding the rights and duties of everyone. It can be pretty disappointing to know that a former deputy may have forgotten his obligations when he drove his squad car erratically during a rush-traffic, while he was still a member of the police department.
According to reports, Fresno police arrested Brian Hills last Dec 23. along Bullard Avenue. The former deputy reportedly said that he was on his way home after the end of his work shift.
Toxicology reports revealed that prescription drugs, which surpassed the effective level, were in Hills’ drug system when he was arrested. This may have contributed to his wild driving behavior.
Hills said he took one Klonopin pill and four Benadryl allergy pills, which may be bought over-the-counter.
Klonopin is a medication for panic attacks and seizures.
He is now facing a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence, said reports.
It remains unclear whether Hills voluntarily resigned or was terminated following his arrest.
