June 15, 2009

A Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office deputy was arrested for drunken driving and endangering safety by possessing a dangerous weapon in Wauwatosa on Wednesday morning.

According to a Wauwatosa Police Department report:

Scott Kuhtz, 46, of Wauwatosa, was pulled over in the 7300 block of North Avenue at 9:14 a.m. after another driver reported a reckless driver that tried to ram his vehicle.

When an officer approached his vehicle, Kuhtz identified himself as a sheriff's deputy. Police took a Glock handgun from his shoulder holster before performing sobriety tests.

His blood-alcohol was 0.21, nearly three times the legal limit.

He was referred to the Milwaukee County's District Attorney's Office. His charging hearing has been postponed until July 10.
