(Scroll down for video) A police officer was arrested for killing a student and injuring four others while they were getting off a school bus.

48-year-old John Camfield of Mississippi, who worked in law enforcement of 10 years, was described by his peers as “one of the best detectives, but he had a problem with alcohol.”

Sadly, he did not get control over his drinking problem and he caused the death of 13-year-old Jahiem Robertson.

He also injured Robertson’s sister and three other students from Dundee Ridge Middle Academy.

Camfield then left the scene of the accident and soon hit another car that was driven by a pregnant woman.

At that time, Camfield’s car was so badly damaged that he was unable to drive away. His blood alcohol content was .14, seven hours after his arrest, which was still almost double the legal limit.

Camfield is facing many charges and is being held on $600,000 bail.

Deputy J.J. Quintana was very emotional. He said that he was on the phone with his daughter when she suddenly screamed for help. Quintana, who worked the night shift, had been resting at the time.

He ran out of his home barefoot and found the injured children, who he saw everyday while putting his daughter on the school bus and when he picked her up.

Police identified the victims as 13-year-old Jahiem Robertson, who is deceased, his sister, 14-year-old Jasmine Robertson, Jonte Robinson, 15, Juan Mena, 13, and Rylan Pryce, 12.

A sheriff in Mississippi, described Camfield as “the best detective the department ever had.”
