VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. — A Volusia County deputy sheriff has been put on leave after she was arrested Saturday night on a DUI charge.

Deputy Stephanie LeClerc is on administrative leave with pay, according to the Sheriff's Office.

LeClerc, 37, was off duty but driving her patrol car at the time of her arrest, the Sheriff's Office said Sunday.

She will also face a child-neglect charge because a 7-year-old girl was in the patrol car with her.

LeClerc, who's been with the agency since 1999, works at the Volusia County Courthouse Annex in Daytona Beach, the Sheriff's Office said.
