The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says Davies resigned a day before his pre-termination hearing was to be held.
“Trooper Davies' actions on July 3, 2014, was an egregious breach of the standard of conduct demanded by our profession. It is never pleasant when an officer is forced to arrest one of his own, but it should be noted that the Troopers who responded to Davies' DUI accident and subsequently arrested him enforced the standard without exception. I am hopeful that the poor decisions made by former Trooper Joshua Davies will not bring discredit on the 99% of our state troopers that are shining examples of what our profession demands,” said Chief of the Highway Patrol, Ricky Adams.
Davies had been with the OHP for eight years and was assigned to the Patrol's Marine Enforcement Division.
