FRANKFORT, Ind. -- A Frankfort police officer was arrested last Saturday for allegedly operating while intoxicated following a traffic stop by Indiana State Police.

Wesley Hickson was taken to the Miami County Jail by Indiana State Police.

Hickson, a detective, was not on duty at the time of his arrest, according to Frankfort Deputy Police Chief Scott Shoemaker.

Shoemaker says Hickson is being placed on administrative leave with pay pending an internal investigation.

"The judicial system will run its course and proceed accordingly, based on the facts of the investigation. Not having any role in the investigation, our Department has no further comment on the situation," said Shoemaker.
