JUPITER, Fla. (AP) - A Jupiter police officer was charged with driving under the influence after reportedly driving his marked patrol car onto a curb in the police department parking lot.

Police say 54-year-old Jeffrey Sprauer was placed on administrative leave Wednesday morning.

A report says Sprauer failed a field sobriety test, but no alcohol was detected in his system.

Sprauer was previously fired in May 2007 after Stuart police arrested him in December 2006 on suspicion of driving drunk. He was reinstated in January 2008 after an arbitrator found there was no clear evidence Sprauer was drunk that night. He had not actually been charged with DUI.

Sprauer was being held Wednesday on a DUI charge.

A telephone message left with Sprauer's attorney was not immediately returned.
