Our sources also tell us, the Deputies who investigated the crash that night, will also likely face disciplinary action.
Chief Investigator Chris Nakamoto reported on New Roads Police Captain Mark Munson last Monday. Munson crashed a truck he was driving, and wasn't given a breath test even though a nearly empty bottle of gin was found in his truck.
