The sentencing of a former Orange County deputy was postponed after he allegedly showed up to court drunk.

Allan James Waters. 37, pleaded guilty to several DUI charges stemming from a crash that injured a 78-year-old woman.

He was supposed to be sentenced Friday, but a judge said Waters looked too intoxicated. Waters was taken back into custody and his bail was increased from $100,000 to $250,000.

His sentencing was rescheduled for Wednesday.

When Waters agreed to plead guilty in April, the judge told him he wouldn't face more than 15 months in prison, but now, he could face additional charges.
