SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (KMTR) -- A Lane County Sheriff's Office patrol deputy accused of driving under the influence was arrested over the weekend. Springfield Police Department arrested Les Sieczkowski Friday night at Highway 126 and 52nd Street.
"My understanding is our officer stopped a vehicle as a result of a citizen," explained Captain Rich Harrison with Springfield Police. "It was a standard DUII investigation. We handled it like any other DUI case that we run across."
Sieczskowki has worked for LCSO for about twenty years and is now on leave while the Lane County Sheriff's Office investigates whether he violated any department policies.
Springfield Police told NewsSource 16 Sieczskowski was cooperative during the sobriety tests.
He will be in court on June 20th.
