ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Buncombe County's Sheriff's Office says a deputy charged with driving while intoxicated is out of a job. 

The agency says Deputy Jason Honeycutt was arrested at an Asheville hospital by police earlier this week and was fired. No other details surrounding the arrest have been released. 

Sheriff's spokeswoman Natalie Bailey says she couldn't say anything about the circumstances of the arrest or what Honeycutt's duties were with the agency.  

Honeycutt could not be reached for comment Sunday. Messages left at numbers connected to him were not returned or rang unanswered. 

He's the second Buncombe County law officer recently arrested for DWI in the past two weeks.  Woodfin police officer Michael Salley was suspended after his arrest while off-duty.
