This week, it is reported that an off-duty Orange County Sherriff's deputy was arrested after he caused an auto accident and hit an elderly female driver. After the accident, 36 year old Allan James Waters was charged with one felony count of DUI causing bodily injury and two counts of selling a substance in lieu of cocaine.
Police say that Waters caused the collision with the 78 year old woman on June 9th. She was taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries.
Waters was supposedly under the influence of prescription drugs and was accused of using fake cocaine to purchase the prescription medication. Prior to the major accident, officers report that Waters was involved in a minor accident on Gold Lantern Street in Dana Point.
If he is convicted of his charges, he will face up to seven years in prison. He is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
