LUBBOCK, TEXAS (KCBD) - A Lubbock Police officer is on paid administrative leave, following his arrest for driving while intoxicated Friday night.

According to Capt. Greg Stevens, Lubbock Police responded to a call of a one vehicle accident in the 6500 block of the west frontage road of Interstate Highway 27, in which a black Ford pickup had struck a guardrail.

Upon their arrival, responding officers identified the driver as off-duty Lubbock Police officer Michael Furlow. Officers determined that probable cause indicating that Furlow was intoxicated existed. He was arrested for Driving While Intoxicated and taken to the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office jail.

The on-duty LPD Shift Commander immediately placed Furlow on Administrative Leave after his arrest.

On Monday, March 23, 2009, the Chief of Police ordered an Internal Affairs investigation into Furlow's arrest. He remains on paid Administrative Leave as the matter is being investigated.

Furlow started with the department on February 6, 1989. The traffic accident involved only Furlow's vehicle and no injuries.
