(NORFOLK, Va.) -- Maj. Jack P. Benzie Jr., the fourth-highest-ranking officer in the Portsmouth sheriff's office, was cleared of a driving under the influence charge stemming from an October single-car crash on U.S. 58 in Suffolk.

Benzie, a 15-year veteran in the sheriff's office, was traveling west on U.S. 58 during the early-morning hours of Oct. 7 when he lost control of his unmarked sheriff's car, police said. The city-owned car was totaled in the crash, with an estimated $14,000 in damages, according to a Suffolk police report.
