According to officials, a South Carolina deputy has resigned in the wake of his arrest for driving under the influence after he crashed a patrol vehicle.
Orangeburg County Sheriff Larry Williams reported to several media outlets on January 5 that Robert Ayers had resigned.
On December 30, Ayers was arrested after he ran into a ditch south of Orangeburg. Troopers said that the officer, who was off-duty at the time, failed multiple sobriety tests and refused to submit to a breathalyzer test.
According to Williams, Ayers had been a member of the department for three years and had been placed on leave during the investigation.
