PALMDALE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a drunken-driving suspect who crashed his pickup truck into several parked vehicles was an off-duty Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy.

The California Highway Patrol says no injuries were reported in the crash early Sunday in Palmdale.

The CHP says the 24-year-old suspect remained at the scene for police to arrive. He was arrested on suspicion of DUI.

City News Service says sheriff’s officials would not name the suspect but they said he had been a deputy for six months and has been relieved of duty.

At least five vehicles were damaged.
