MANNING, N.D. (AP) — The sheriff in western North Dakota's Dunn County has fired a deputy who crashed patrol cars three times in a little more than a year.

Sheriff Don Rockvoy says Leif Anderson was a good deputy but his driving history "got to be a liability issue." Anderson declined comment to The Dickinson Press (http://bit.ly/GMI7Yi ).

Rockvoy says Anderson fell asleep at the wheel and went in the ditch, crashed into a guard rail while looking at his computer screen and slid into an approach while trying to pass another vehicle. Anderson told county commissioners earlier this month that he has "the worst luck in the world."
