The lieutenant, identified as 55-year-old Brenda Maynard, was arrested in Arroyo Grande on Nov. 24.

According to the Arroyo Grande Police Department, Maynard was arrested on suspicion of public intoxication after officers received a call about a disturbance at the Rooster Creek Tavern in Arroyo Grande.
