AIKEN COUNTY, S.C. -- A Blackville police officer is out of a job after being arrested for DUI in another county.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol charged 25-year-old Russell Edward Zorn with first offense DUI, less than .10 and open liquor.

Zorn was picked up Saturday night in Aiken and is currently out on bond.
