CARY, N.C. --
A 47-year-old North Carolina Highway Patrol trooper was arrested in Cary Saturday.
Kenneth Ray Snead is charged with being intoxicated and disruptive and resisting an officer.
The arrest happened at the "World of Beer" in Renaissance Park Place.
Investigators said there was a bar fight involving three people. They were kicked out into the parking lot where one of the three left.
Two remained and allegedly were continuing to brawl when Cary police officers arrived.
Cary police said it took three officers to get Snead under control as he bounced off a car and landed on the concrete - suffering cuts to his face.
The other man allegedly involved, 46-year-old John Lauby of Fayetteville, was charged with being intoxicated and disruptive and carrying a concealed weapon.
The NC Highway Patrol said Snead, a first sergeant, has been placed on administrative duty pending an internal investigation.
