Spokane county deputy charged with DUI

SPOKANE, Wash. A Spokane County Sheriff's Deputy has been placed on modified duty status after being charged with driving under the influence of alcohol last Friday. Darin Schaum, a 12-year sheriff's office employee, was arrested by Washington State Patrol Trooper Eugene Trevino about 2 a.m. Friday. 

Schaum had been stopped by Spokane Valley Police Officer Todd Miller after Miller observed a Dodge pickup driven by the deputy apparently racing or confronting the driver of another vehicle in the area of Broadway and McDonald.

When Schaum identified himself as a deputy sheriff and exhibited signs of intoxication, Miller called the on-duty patrol sergeant who referred the investigation to the WSP. Trevino processed Schaum and later released him.  The investigation now goes to the Spokane County Prosecutor's Office. Schaum had been assigned to the Investigative Task Force where he assisted in property crimes investigations and the tracking of wanted fugitives.  He has not worked since the arrest because of his normal duty schedule.

Sheriff Knezovich said Monday that the deputy would be assigned to other duties until completion of an internal administrative review of the incident.
