    The Prince George's County Sheriff's Office is conducting an internal investigation after a sheriff's deputy, who was arrested for failing a field sobriety test, was let go without being charged.

    Cpl. Donovan Gholston drove his personal vehicle into a ditch earlier this month and was arrested after allegedly failing a sobriety test. Gholston was later released to internal affairs investigators without being charged, according to a county spokesperson.

    Sgt. David Essing ordered Gholston's release, authorities said. Essing was briefly suspended but returned to duty on March 19.

    Meanwhile, Gholston is still on the job. An agency spokesperson is not commenting on whether or not he has been disciplined.
