Kitsap County Deputy Prosecutor Barbara O. Dennis was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after a rear-end collision Wednesday in Poulsbo.
The Washington State Patrol says Dennis was booked into the Kitsap County Jail. She posted bail and was released.
Kitsap County Prosecutor Russ Hauge (HOG'-ee) has referred the case to Pierce County to avoid any conflict of interest.
The Kitsap Sun reports (http://bit.ly/1fp4GbW ) Dennis was previously charged with drunken driving in 2007. The charged was reduced to negligent driving and Dennis complied with court-ordered conditions.
