An officer who was chief of staff to Fort Worth Police Chief Jeff Halstead has been demoted following his arrest on a driving while intoxicated charge.

Halstead says Maj. Paul Henderson has been demoted to captain and will return to work Saturday but with the community programs division. The police chief says Henderson will have administrative duties until the internal investigation is completed.

Henderson was off-duty when he was arrested last weekend in Parker County by a Texas trooper.

Henderson was placed on detached duty status following his arrest. He also faces a pay cut with the demotion announced Tuesday.
