Dec. 18, 2007 at 8:09 PM

PALM BEACH, Fla., Dec. 18 (UPI) -- A longtime Florida police officer was arrested after allegedly driving his Miami-Dade County patrol car drunk.

Officer Jeffrey Janish, 51, was released from the Palm Beach County jail early Tuesday, The Miami Herald reported.

Janish, a member of the Miami-Dade police force since 1983, was arrested Monday night in Palm Beach after a witness reported seeing him driving erratically on Florida's Turnpike.

Janish also drove through a toll plaza ''in excess of the posted speed,'' said Florida Highway Patrol Officer Lt. Michael Brown.

Janish's status with Miami-Dade police was unclear, the newspaper reported.
