Former Florida police officer, 55, arrested for drunk driving and marijuana possession


A former Florida police officer has been arrested for getting into a car crash while allegedly driving drunk on Sunday.

Former Ormond Beach officer Brenton Hodge, 55, was arrested on Sunday afternoon after deputies found him with bloodshot eyes, reeking of alcohol, and beer cans littered on his car floor.

When cops tried to arrest him, he tried to sneak a bag of marijuana down his pants right in front of the officers trying to escort him away.

He now faces charges of driving under the influence and possession of marijuana, according to jail records.

Hodge had served as an officer in Ormond Beach from 1997 to 2016. He retired after 19 years on the force in lieu of termination for a violation of agency policy, according to WESH2.
