MONROE, Ga. (AP) — A sheriff’s deputy is facing a DUI charge after authorities say he wrecked his patrol car in Walton County.

Georgia State Patrol officials say Gwinnett County Deputy Robert Christopher Matt is charged with driving under the influence, leaving the scene of an accident, failing to maintain lane and having an open container of alcohol.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the deputy’s vehicle ran off Georgia 81 around 1:20 a.m. Wednesday, struck an embankment and overturned several times. He was taken to the Walton County Jail. Jail records did not indicate whether he has an attorney.

A 27-year-old Lawrenceville woman who was a passenger in the patrol car was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center for treatment.
