GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday morning that a deputy was placed on leave after being arrested by the SC Highway Patrol.

The SC Highway Patrol said a trooper driving along SC 253 around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday came across a 1979 Jeep that had left the roadway and struck a tree.

Troopers identified the driver of the Jeep as John McCloud III. 

Troopers said McCloud failed a field sobriety test and was transported to the Greenville County Detention Center where he refused a breath test.

McCloud was charged with driving under the influence, troopers said.

Sgt. Ryan Flood with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office said McCloud was placed on non-paid administrative leave after the sheriff's office was notified of the arrest.

On Tuesday, the sheriff’s office announced that another deputy had been placed on leave following an arrest by the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office.
