A Mendocino County Sheriff's Office deputy rolled his personal truck while driving south on Highway 101 near Black Bart Drive south of Willits at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Deputy Tim Goss lost control of his pickup, which overturned; he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence by the California Highway Patrol, the CHP stated Wednesday.

Goss is now on paid leave, a routine action for such an event, Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman said Wednesday afternoon.

Goss has been a member of the Sheriff's Office for about seven to eight years, Allman said. He was off-duty at the time of the crash.
