Kitsap County Deputy Prosecutor Barbara O. Dennis was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after a rear-end collision Wednesday in Poulsbo.

The Washington State Patrol says Dennis was booked into the Kitsap County Jail. She posted bail and was released.

Kitsap County Prosecutor Russ Hauge has referred the case to Pierce County to avoid any conflict of interest.

The Kitsap Sun newspaper reports Dennis was previously charged with drunken driving in 2007. The charged was reduced to negligent driving and Dennis complied with court-ordered conditions.
