BATON ROUGE- An off-duty Baton Rouge Police officer possibly involved an overnight two-vehicle crash, has been arrested for DWI.

It happened around 3:40 a.m. on I-12 eastbound near the Sherwood Forest exit.

Police say Steven Woodring was headed east in his personal vehicle, when another car lost control and flipped on its side.

Woodring helped pull the driver from the car and called police.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but the icy road conditions are believe to be a factor.

Woodring, who has been with the department for 5 years, has been placed on Administrative Leave pending an internal investigation.
