A New Hampshire sheriff was found guilty Tuesday of drunken driving.

A judge sentenced Merrimack County Sheriff Scott Hilliard to spend five days in the Belknap County jail. Hilliard was also found guilty of transporting an alcoholic beverage.

Hilliard was arrested in August in a restaurant parking lot in Tilton after officers responded to a call about a driver swerving on the road. The off-duty sheriff smelled of alcohol and was swaying when police encountered him walking to his car.
