MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Wisconsin sheriff’s deputy has been arrested in Minnesota on suspicion of drunken driving.
The Milwaukee County sheriff’s office identified her Tuesday as 41-year-old Capt. Catherine Trimboli.
Authorities say she was driving Sunday about 2:30 a.m. in Red Wing, Minnesota. A police officer stopped her because her tail lights were off.
The sheriff’s office says Trimboli asked the officer to let her go as a “professional courtesy.” She registered 0.14 percent on a breath test, almost twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent. She was booked for first-offense drunken driving and released.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke says she’s been relieved of command and put on administrative duty. He says flashing her badge and asking for a pass aggravated an already bad situation.
Trimboli doesn’t have a listed phone number.
