Clayton County deputy pleads guilty to OWI


ST. OLAF (KWWL) -- A Clayton County Sheriff's Deputy charged with Operating While Intoxicated following a hit and run accident in December, has pleaded guilty.

The Clayton County Sheriff's Office got a report of a hit and run accident on December 14, 2009 at around 4:12 a.m. on Highway 18 near Breezy Point Summit.

The investigation found that the vehicle that left the scene was the personal vehicle of Clayton County Sheriff's Deputy Brian Berger.

The Iowa State Patrol was then called in to investigate the accident.

Berger pled guilty last week to First Offense OWI.  According to online court records, he had all but five days of his 30 day jail sentence suspended, will pay only half of the $1,797.50 in fines and will pay attorney's fees.

Chief Deputy Ryan Johnson says that Berger is no longer employed with the Clayton County Sheriff's Office.
