A former St. Tammany Parish sheriff's deputy is now under indictment for allegedly falsifying a DWI report in 2016.

The two-count indictment was handed up Thursday by a parish grand jury.

In one instance, it's alleged that the ex-deputy, 42-year-old Rickey Steinert, lied about a field sobriety test given to a National Guard soldier he stopped and subsequently arrested.

The man was convicted, the guilty finding later vacated by the district attorney's office.
