A San Diego County Sheriff’s deputy was arrested on Friday night for allegedly driving under the influence and trying to enter Naval Air Station North Island without clearance.

The incident resulted in the temporary lockdown of the base.

According to investigators, the deputy, identified as Sergeant Michael Cruz, ignored military orders to slow down and instead sped up toward the gate.

Guards shot at Cruz’s car, but no one was hurt.

He was later booked into San Diego central jail and charged with driving under the influence.

The Naval Criminal Investigative Service has taken over the case, and Cruz has been put on paid administrative assignment while the investigation continues.

The incident marks the latest in a string of arrests of San Diego County Sheriff’s deputies over the last few months for various criminal charges.

The department has released a statement saying it will not tolerate criminal behavior in its ranks and will hold employees accountable for their actions.

The gates on the Naval Base have since reopened.
