St. Mary Parish Sheriff Scott Anslum advises that on Sunday, February 4, 2018, an off-duty St. Mary Sheriff’s Office deputy was arrested by Louisiana State Police for operating a vehicle while intoxicated in Terrebonne Parish. The patrol deputy, Dustin Crabtree, who was placed on suspension without pay pending an internal investigation, is no longer employed with the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office.
According to the Louisiana State Police Troop C, an off-duty St Mary Parish Sheriff Deputy was arrested on Sunday February 4, 2018 charged with DWI involving a juvenile and expired license plate. The off-duty officer is Uniformed Patrol Section Corporal Dustin Crabtree.
Crabtree was just named by Sheriff Scott Anslum as Deputy of the Quarter Award back on January 26, 2018.
Authorities said Crabtree was found to be above the legal limit of .08g% after submitting to a breath test.
Sheriff Scott Anslum said in a press release earlier today that Crabtree has been placed on suspension without pay pending an internal investigation.
Sheriff Scott Anslum says, “Our badge is a symbol of the trust the people of St. Mary Parish have placed in us. We, as law enforcement officers, must maintain a high level of integrity. When a law enforcement officer breaks that trust, they must be held accountable for their decisions.”
