Officer Daniel Talbot Arrested for DUI

A Moore police officer in training was arrested on DUI charges on Sunday, November 4 in Norman.

OU campus police arrested Daniel Talbot just before 2 a.m. Sunday. Officers say a vehicle driven by Talbot was going the wrong way in the 700 block of Buchanan Avenue.

Police stopped Talbot in the 400 block of W. Boyd Street. They say they could smell an odor of alcohol coming from Talbot's breath and person. Talbot reportedly admitted to drinking prior to driving.

Officers also found a loaded firearm, a glock .22 generation 4, in Talbot's vehicle.

Talbot was then taken into custody on charges of DUI, and carrying a weapon under the influence of alcohol.

Talbot resigned from the Moore Police Department on Tuesday, November 5. He was also a former officer at the McAlester Police Department.

Just last month, another Moore officer was arrested for DUI following an off-duty car accident. Police say 13-year veteran officer Tony Towery was arrested after running into the back of another car.
