The Florida Highway Patrol responded to the crash before CCSO arrived, “which is a common practice when members of our agency are involved in traffic crashes,” the sheriff’s office stated.

After investigating, FHP arrested White for alleged DUI and White was taken to jail.

White is a 12-year veteran of CCSO.
