OUACHITA PARISH, La. (KNOE 8 News) - A Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Deputy is in hot water after taking his boat in the water using a sheriff's office truck.

KNOE 8 News found Deputy Steven Scott Smith pulling his personal boat out of the water and around the Foresythe Park area with a department issued vehicle.

Smith didn't have much to say to our camera's when we confronted him about it.

Smith is on-call 24-hours-a-day and that's why he has the truck, but Sheriff Jay Russell says regardless, using company vehicles for personal use and using tax-payer dollars is a clear violation of department policy.
