KALISPELL, Mont. - A Stevens County deputy has been charged with driving drunk, after he allegedly plowed through a crime scene on the night of Thanksgiving south of Kalispell.
The deputy reportedly admitted he'd been drinking, and was looking at his phone when he drove into the middle of a fatal hit and run crime scene. Officials say 29-year-old Deputy Brandon Hoover was going more than 100 miles an hour when he hit a car, drove off the road, and crashed into a fence.
A breathalyzer reportedly showed his blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit.
Hoover has been charged with aggravated DUI and felony criminal endangerment.
