BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Harrison County Constable Windy Swetman Sr. got into trouble with the law this weekend. Biloxi Police tell WLOX News Swetman was arrested and charged with DUI refusal.

Saturday night, officers responded to a single vehicle accident by Elk and Caillavet Streets. That's where investigators say they found Swetman passed out in the driver's seat of a Jeep that was partially on a curb and still in the street. The Jeep was still running.

Police said Swetman appeared to be intoxicated during the investigation into the initial call. There was no damage to the street or Swetman's vehicle.

He was arrested and charged with DUI refusal. Swetman was released after posting bond on the $1,285 fine.
