The State Highway Patrol has fired a trooper accused of driving drunk and hitting two parked cars outside a Short North bar.

Jeremy Garner, 35, was fired last week after other troopers testified they tried to keep him from driving away Skully’s Music Diner after a night of drinking in February.

Other troopers say Garner became “hostile” before leaving.

Garner was previously convicted of drunken driving in 2007.
