ST. MARY- Authorities have arrested an off-duty St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office deputy for DWI for driving while intoxicated Sunday.
State police arrested Dustin Crabtree Sunday in Terrebonne Parish. According to a release, Crabtree was placed on suspension without pay pending an internal investigation, and is no longer employed with the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office.
