THIBODAUX - A Louisiana police officer originally charged with driving under the influence has pleaded guilty to reckless driving in Florida.

Florida State Attorney's Office tells The Daily Comet Collier County Judge Vince Murphy ordered 33-year-old Varick Taylor Jr. on Monday to pay a $250 fine plus court and prosecution costs.

Samantha Syoen, a spokeswoman for the state attorney's office, says Taylor had already completed a 12-hour driving course as part of the plea deal.

The newspaper says the Thibodaux police chief couldn't be reached for comment Monday, but the department has said internal investigations always precede employees' terminations.

The Florida Highway Patrol arrested Taylor on Aug. 3 in Naples, Florida.
