EBR deputy-in-training fired, arrested for DWI after Corvette chase

EAST BATON ROUGE PARISH, LA (WAFB) - Baton Rouge police arrested an EBRSO deputy-in-training early Sunday morning for refusing to stop and driving while intoxicated, police say.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office says Jeremiah Williams, 29, is charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated and aggravated flight from an officer.

Williams had been in the Field Training Officer program.

According to reports, Williams was traveling northbound on Plank Road in a Corvette when he refused to stop for the officer. He reportedly disregarded several stop signs before coming to a stop. He submitted to a breathalyzer test and failed with a .118 BAC.

Williams was hired by EBRSO in December of 2017 and was terminated Sunday.
