Authorities say a former San Joaquin County sheriff was arrested this week after rear-ending a truck and failing a sobriety test.
It's the latest legal trouble for T. Baxter Dunn who resigned as sheriff amid a public corruption scandal two years ago.
The California Highway Patrol says Dunn was driving his Chrysler sedan about 70 miles per hour on Highway 120 on Thursday night when he crashed into a truck and injured its driver.
A CHP spokesman says Dunn was arrested on suspicion of driving
under the influence. He posted bail from county jail on Friday.
Dunn was sentenced to six months in prison in 2005 for secretly investing in a company that wanted to build a power plant at the Port of Stockton.
