A San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s deputy was arrested for DUI at the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area on March 10. Nevertheless, the deputy was not booked into jail nor was his mugshot taken. [Cal Coast Times]

Shortly before midnight, Rainer Lee Bodine,32, was driving northbound near the shoreline toward Pier Avenue with three passengers when he was pulled over for driving 38 mph in a 15 mph zone. Bodine admitted to drinking about five beers in two and a half hours.

In side a side door compartment, a park ranger found Bodine’s service revolver. On the floorboard of the back seat, the ranger found several empty beer bottles.

A blood test showed Bodine had a blood alcohol level of .12. The legal limit to drive is .08.

Following his arrest, Bodine was released to a family member. He was not booked into the county jail.

Bodine plans to plead no contest to misdemeanor DUI charges next week.

Nothing burger.

Where is the double standard and Blue Brotherhood. He was arrested and released at the station, happens all the time. Was he given special treatment or Blue Brotherhood treatment like given a ride back to his camp? No he was arrested just like anyone else. AmericaTheFree, please do some reasearch, DUI is a misdemeanor. Was there any injury involved to charge him with a felony or do you want special laws to charge law enforcement with a higher level of punishment? I do hope they keep up with this and please post if he receives any fine, DUI classes, maybe a restriction to drive to and from work and during employment or probation then I would assume all you ignorant haters will post an apology. To the thousands of others who have got a DUI who can keep it from there employers I bet he will receive anywhere from 5-20 days maybe more of Unpaid time off. So fines from the courts and loss of pay from employer is that not a double standard? How about the papers and CCN print an article and post a picture of anyone arrested for a DUI.

azuresees says most don’t get booked if they are cooperative? You forgot to add and they are LE or related to LE.

Great points by all. I’m wondering who they turned his service revolver over too. A trusted family member as well? Holy crap this is insane. First the cop driving like a bat out of hell down LOVR with his pistol on board now this?
