LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Todd Brownson was arrested for driving under the influence Thursday night.

Brownson was off-duty last night when he rear-ended a car at the intersection of Cypress Lake Drive and Cypress Lake Plaza. The Lee County Sheriff's office put Brownson on administrative leave without pay.

Before his job with the Sheriff's office, Brownson was a Cape Coral police officer for 21 years. He may have worked in the Special Operations Bureau, which includes DUI enforcement. However, there is no certainty he did any DUI enforcement.
