Sheriff's captain found passed out in drive-through

HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) -- The head of the drug and vice unit for the county sheriff's department has quit after being accused of drunken driving for the second time in two years.
Police charged Capt. Greg Blankenship, 47, of Hamilton, Sunday morning after finding him passed out in his vehicle in front of a drive-through window at a restaurant.
He refused to take a breath test and failed other sobriety tests, according to the police reports.
Blankenship pleaded guilty in 2003 to drunken driving and was suspended without pay for two months. He also was warned that any future alcohol-related infraction could lead to his firing, the sheriff's office said.
Blankenship was off duty at the time of both arrests, authorities said.
Blankenship has an unlisted number and could not be reached for comment.
