Arapahoe County deputy Jeffrey Vincent, who was sentenced Thursday, also was ordered to pay a $600 fine and undergo an alcohol evaluation. He was convicted of misdemeanor DUI, as well as prohibited use of a weapon for carrying a gun while he was intoxicated.

Prosecutors say a fellow Arapahoe County sheriff’s deputy reported that he suspected Vincent was drunk on duty Jan. 3, 2017. Vincent’s assignment that day was to transport inmates from the jail to the courthouse south of Denver.

A test administered about four hours later showed he had a blood-alcohol content of 0.081 percent.
