A Harris County deputy sheriff killed by a suspected drunk driver will be laid to rest over the weekend.

Funeral services for 47-year old Sergeant Dwayne Polk will be held Saturday.

Polk was a 16-year veteran of the Harris County Sheriff's Office. He was killed in a crash early Sunday morning when 22-year old Andres Munos crashed into his vehicle.

Investigators say Munos' blood alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit.

Munos was previously deported and has a prior DWI arrest. He's being held without bond.
