He is normally the one processing criminals through the Clay County Detention Center, but the roles were reversed for Chief Deputy Jailer William Sizemore after being stopped by police.

Late tuesday night around ten o' clock Manchester police officers pulled over Sizemore near the intersection of 638 and 421. They said he had a high blood/alcohol level.

"According to the citation, he took a breath test and was double the legal limit," said Manchester Police Chief Chris Fultz.

Chris Fultz, the new Manchester City Police Chief, says it can be difficult to make arrests like this, given the relationships formed between officers and jail staff.

"Usually when you're dealing with someone from the jail, it puts them in a bad predicament cause they deal with them on an everyday basis. I know the chief deputy has been there for a while. It puts them in a bad situation but they still have a job to do, that's what I want them to do, is their job," said Fultz.

Sizemore has been released on bail. But the fate of his employment is now up to jail officials.

"We came in this morning at eight and it just unfolded on us then. So I'll be talking with some other officials and we'll go from there," said Clay County Jailer Kenny Price.

This is Sizemore's second arrest in the past six months.
