Problems continue to mount for a Cleveland County police force after a police officer is arrested for DUI. Brent Sirpless was booked into the Norman jail on charges of drinking and driving and carrying a loaded weapon. Sirpless is on administrative leave and has entered an alcohol treatment program.

Sirpless is the fourth Noble police officer to be put on administrative leave. Three other officers are on paid leave after an accidental shooting left a five year old boy dead earlier this year.

The city of Noble now only has seven police officers still on duty.
