Ramsey County sheriff's deputy charged with drunk-driving

The 26-year-old woman from Maplewood is facing two charges.

A Twin Cities sheriff's deputy has been charged with drunk-driving after being pulled over in White Bear Lake in the early hours of Monday.

Amanda Rose Skelly, 26, of Maplewood, was pulled over by a White Bear Lake police sergeant at 1:22 a.m. at White Bear Avenue and Buerkle Road, when the officer noticed a broken taillight on her Chevy Impala.

According to a criminal complaint, the officer noted Skelly smelled of alcohol, and that her eyes were bloodshot and glassy, her speech slow and slurred.

She admitted to the officer that she'd been drinking, and failed a breath test, blowing a reading of 0.21AC, with the legal limit in Minnesota 0.08.

A breath sample she later gave at White Bear registered a result of 0.18AC.

WCCO reports that Skelly has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation. She became a deputy with the office in 2016.

She has been charged with two counts of 3rd degree DWI.
