The Pasco Sheriff's Office said one of its own deputies has been arrested and charged with driving under the influence.

Deputy Steven Walker stars in the A&E TV show 'LivePD,' which features the Pasco Sheriff's Office. 

On Saturday, Walker was arrested by New Port Richey police officers for driving drunk. 

A report released by the New Port Richey Police Department says officers found Walker standing in front of his Honda Accord which had heavy front-end damage. A second vehicle, a Chevy Impala, was also heavily damaged. 

Justin Kerr, who owns the car that Walker hit,  was inside his home Saturday morning when the crash happened. 

"He somehow merged into the wrong side of the street and hit my car." Kerr said. 

Walker told an officer he crashed into Kerr's car after he swerved to avoid an animal in the road. The officer noticed several signs of impairment and began an investigation. Walker refused a breath test and a field sobriety test. 

Kerr says even though he's frustrated about the damage to his car, he still has sympathy for Walker. 

"I'm still mad about it, but there's still some human aspect to it," he explained. "I don't have any hate in my heart for him. I feel bad for him, it was a mistake, and were all human and the end of the day."

Walker was charged with DUI and DUI with property damage charges. Sheriff's Office officials told FOX 13 that Walker is in the process of being terminated from the agency.
