ELKO, Nevada — This might make for a tense time at home.

An off-duty sheriff's deputy was pulled over and charged with driving under the influence - by her husband.

Charlotte Moore, 36, a jail deputy and 11-year veteran, was driving her 2004 Pontiac Grand Am when she was pulled over by her husband, Elko County Sheriff's Deputy Mike Moore, a police report said.

She allegedly left before being administered a portable breathalyzer test, the Elko Daily Free Press reported.

Mike Moore pulled her over again and called the Elko Police Department for backup. He left shortly after another officer arrived.

Charlotte Moore was released at 1:47 a.m. on Sunday and placed on paid administrative leave, Elko County Undersheriff Rocky Gonzalez said.

Neither Mike nor Charlotte Moore was available for comment Monday, the Elko Daily Free Press said.
