High ranking police officer charged with drunk driving

Posted: Updated:

A high ranking Fort Worth police department is accused of driving drunk.

Major Paul Henderson, the department's chief of staff, was arrested near the I-30/20 split in Parker county, Saturday.

Henderson was off duty at the time.

Two years ago, Henderson expressed outrage at the number of off-duty Fort Worth police officers being stopped for drunk driving

Police chief Jeff Halstead says Henderson is now on restrictive status while the incident is investigated.

Chief Halstead released a statement that read:

"Major Henderson was assigned as my Chief of Staff; I will make immediate changes in his responsibilities to protect the integrity of this process and ensure all projects can continue as planned.. ensuring our department remains efficient to our citizens."
