A former Gwinnett County deputy is facing charges after she was arrested over the weekend.

Jail records show that 38-year-old Nickia Tyler was arrested in the early hours of Sunday in Oconee County.

The Oconee County Sheriff's Office confirmed that Tyler was charged with a DUI and failure to maintain lane.
