A deputy with the Douglas County Sheriff's Office was drunk early Saturday when he drove an unmarked department vehicle the wrong way on a street on the University of Nebraska at Omaha campus, authorities said.
Lt. Richard J. Lally Jr., 46, smelled of alcohol, failed field sobriety tests and had a blood-alcohol content of .185 percent, according to a police report. The legal limit for drivers in Nebraska is .08 percent.
Lally, who was off duty, was ticketed on suspicion of driving under the influence.
He was stopped about 3:20 a.m. after his vehicle was spotted weaving on the wrong side of University Drive South, according to the report.
Lally has been assigned to administrative duties while an internal investigation is under way, Chief Deputy Marty Bilek said.
Lally was among the deputies assigned to target drunken drivers on New Year's Eve and Jan. 1.
He declined to comment.
