Drama Ensues after Binghamton Officer Flees Scene of Accident

featuruedimageOn February 5th 2015, Officer Kristi Sager of The Binghamton Police Department crashed into a parked car and fled the scene of the accident, allegedly smelling of alcohol.  She was subsequently suspended on February 11th, and is fighting to get her job back.

Sager claims that she did not drink that night and simply slid off the road after hitting an ice patch, despite five witness claims that she smelled of alcohol.  She also says she left the scene of the crime after reportedly having an “anxiety attack”, and needed help.  She is currently fighting misconduct charges after the incident.

As can be seen in a TWC News interview: Sager is not taking responsibility for her actions on that Thursday night, and makes several excuses of why she shouldn’t lose her job:

 “I had hit my head hard on the steering wheel, I was bleeding in my mouth, I could taste it and I started having an anxiety attack. So I told him I had to go because I didn’t want to sit there and have that in front of people”

 Sager later goes onto say that the Police Chief of her department- Joseph Ziksuki, is only giving her those charges in retaliation for refusing his sexual advances.-

“He’s a very vindictive retaliatory type person and when things don’t go his way, whoever doesn’t give him what he wants is a target and their job is in jeopardy”

Sager sees no reason why she should be suspended and lose her job, despite leaving the scene of an accident, and despite the mounting evidence of her driving under the influence.  Now she claims she is a victim, and is planning on suing the city if she can’t get her job back.

The hypocrisy continues March 24th, when Sager has her next hearing.

    There is a lot more to this story than what was written. She can’t be charged with DUI because she left the scene before the PD arrived.

    http://www.twcnews.com/nys/binghamton/news/2015/03/2/binghamton-police-officer-responds-to-misconduct-complaint-.html

  • Yankeefan

    She still left the scene of an accident. Anyone else would be charged with something and as a cop, she should be termed for that action. Also, leaving the scene isn’t a defense against drunk driving.

  • Common Sense

    http://media.wbng.com/documents/Answer-SAGER.pdf

    She left the scene and all the other allegations are enough and can be proven, that would get her termed, if not charged (depending on statute). She’s tossing out a hail mary by saying she was sexually harassed.

    “Your services will no longer be required. Don’t let me detain you….”

  • Sikko

    And on the flip side, if her account is true, that she was having an anxiety attack, then she should be dismissed from service as an officer as she would be medically unfit for that service.

  • RaymondbyEllis

    Knd of a slam dunk isn’t it? Sikko brought up the good point of the flip side, which is the anxiety attack would also make her medically unfit for service. The side effects of the drugs used for treating it would also make her unfit.
    Hopefully, no one will be receptive to that hail mary pass.

  • JC

    Why should she be terminated? True she left the scene a big no no. If you somehow drove your car into someone else’s and drove off, would you be fired? She wasn’t in a squad car.

  • Shon Johnson

    No, I would be thrown in prison. Since leaving the scene of an accident is a felony…this criminal was not!

  • Yankeefan

    She is a cop. That is why. If I drove mine into someone else’s car and drove off, I would as I would be criminally charged and that might revoke my credentials. So yes, she should be terminated!

  • JC

    Sorry, it’s only a felony if you hit someone and they are severely injured or killed.

  • JC

    She is a cop? Funny how copblockers say police are no different than anyone else but you hold them to a higher standard. I don’t’ believe she should be fired. What she did was wrong and will have to deal with the consequences of her actions. Being fired shouldn’t be one of them.

  • mioman

    it go to shows her true character. if she would do this kind of stuff off duty what is she willing to do when she is on duty

  • Yankeefan

    Well, I do and she should. Those with power to arrest should at all times and even cops say so! A cop hits a car, several witnesses alleged she has the odor of something resembling booze on her breath, she admits to an anxiety attack and you think she shouldn’t? Ok!

  • Yankeefan

    Injury accidents where you flee the scene may result in a felony charge. Doesn’t have to be a serious injury.

  • Common Sense

    She can always file, but how far it goes if up to the court I suppose. She better have some smoking gun/email/text message or something to back it up cause otherwise, I don’t think it will last long.

  • Common Sense

    In this case, its a misdemeanor, 15 days or $250.00 fine.

  • Shawn

    Would even that be enough? Seriously, her actions are cut and dried, regardless of why he fired her. The most she can do is destroy him. Either way, she’s done, if the justice system actually cares about justice.

    Hell, with actions like that, even if she can win, pay her off and get rid of her before she causes something worse. She clearly has no integrity at all, though that doesn’t make her different than any other cop.

  • Shawn

    Her character is pure shit. And you can’t believe her claims of an anxiety attack. Nor does it change her responsibilities for how she acted.

  • Shawn

    You want to leave someone with such poor character with the power of a badge and gun? Did you just get off the short bus? Seriously, you know full well she was DUI too.

    Man, I thought I had a low opinion of LE. Apparently your opinion of LE is so low that she is fit to be a cop in your book.

  • Shawn

    ““I had hit my head hard on the
    steering wheel, I was bleeding in my mouth, I could taste it and I
    started having an anxiety attack. So I told him I had to go because I
    didn’t want to sit there and have that in front of people””

    That’s the ticket. “Honestly, I had to leave the scene as fast as possible. I scrapped my elbow and needed to get home and put on a band aid, and a large pot of black coffee.”

  • t

    I’m sure there is more to the story.

  • Bfife985

    Prove she was drunk!

  • Bfife985

    No proof she was impaired let alone DUI.

  • Yankeefan

    5 at the scene said she probably was. So, you prove she wasn’t because it appears based on everything, she might have been!
    Care to try again, troll?

  • Bfife985

    Just because they said so or believe one is DUI isn’t evidence!

  • Yankeefan

    It is fit into the totality of the circumstances, which you are arguing against!

    But, keep trying!

  • JC

    I am not condoning what she did. Since she drove off from the scene, you can’t accuse her of driving drunk.

  • JC

    So when a copblocker gets nailed from DUI or has drugs in the vehicle, that is the kind of stuff they would do on their job(s).

  • Pw4x3r

    You should try this one with the police….. ROFL………… R U SRS…. ROFL

  • Pw4x3r

    She can be and is being accused of driving drunk, whether you like it or not, bitch. And you’re trying to defend someone who’s duty is to enforce the law, in comparison to a citizen who has zero obligation, that this person should continue their job upholding the law when they are incapable of abiding by it themselves? When any average person fuck ups royally and has it look bad for the company they work for, they get fired. That’s how it happens for the rest of the people in this country. Fucking cunts like you and all the other pigs have no reason to be immune from that.

  • Pw4x3r

    Let me guess, “interesting” too, right? You’re just a lil JC in training.

  • Bfife985

    People have done it and get away DUI and just get the citation for leaving the scene.

  • Yankeefan

    since here actions are consistent with drunk driving and 5 have stated she wreaked of something smelling like alcohol, yes we can

  • steve

    After a few blow jobs she will be back on duty.

  • steve

    FUCK YOU

  • Common Sense

    I would see how far she takes it. Depose her under oath, it’s not that expensive and term her. There’s plenty and she’s been give. Due process. I’d even have it reviewed for charges from an outside DAY. Let herfight two battles. But you are correct, she must not be brought back.

  • Pw4x3r

    Those are not the people we need in law enforcement.

  • JC

    Really? I’ve seen a number of copblock videos in which some copblocker has been pulled over for drinking and driving. ie (Amanda Billyrock) and she was being accused of DUI with open container in her vehicle while blowing through a red light.
    All copblockers and freekeeners were flipping out about how innocent she was ect…. in the end she took a serious plea deal otherwise she would have went too jail.

    How about James Cleveland. driving across state lines with expired tags. The PD pulled him over and klonopin was found in his van. It is a controlled substance and he doesn’t have a prescription. He still hasn’t got his van back.
    All the freekeeners are flipping out how innocent he is.

    You can’t prove the officer was drunk when she hit the other car because she left the scene. So, spare me your fucking BS rants you make no sense and you are boring me.

  • keepitreal

    She wouldn’t have fled the scene. She was drunk.

  • keepitreal

    All copblockers, huh, douchebag? You are such a fucking asswipe.

  • Yankeefan

    You can’t prove she wasn’t either. The totality of the circumstances support the possibility she was, especially if you include 5 people claiming she might have been boozing!

  • Bfife985

    Where’s the proof?

  • Pw4x3r

    Are you trying to compare the organization tasked with upholding our laws, to a completely public and open group that anyone can associate with?…. and I make no sense…. I’m glad I’m boring you though…. You are too fucking stupid.

  • keepitreal

    In her actions.

  • Bfife985

    Not enough

  • Yankeefan

    He is just trolling1 5 witness said they believed she was based on an odor of something resembling alcohol. Along with her crashing her car, leaving the scene and claiming an anxiety attack, it is not going to be hard to allege DUI!

  • ShawnaConstitutionalistCole

    She assaulted me with her partner Theresa Johnson and then they fabricated a story to pull me into their jurisdiction. I know her to be a liar. THE TRUTH WILL COME OUT, I have a public record of claiming this BEFORE this came out and was made public. Kristi is a LIAR. I KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE.

  • keepitreal

    So she gets away with it because she knows how the law works. Since you’re so much into defending this drunken tramp, I hope you’re the person she runs into next time she’s DUI.

  • Bfife985

    Nice Christian response! Wait you’re not! Lol

  • whoopsydoodoo

    We agree that they should apply the same standards to her that they would apply to anyone else in this situation. But the claim that she “smelled of alcohol” seems like insufficient evidence to prove she was intoxicated. A variety of scenarios could account for it. Or would you like to live in a society where a felony conviction hinges on the sensitivity of a few nostrils?

  • Lakawak

    Just fleeing the scene is enough to get many people charged with DUI. Even without eyewitnesses who have NOTHING to gain from their testimony saying it is true.

    So let me ask you. Friend or family member? IT is clear you are not unbiased…so which is it? OR are you her?

  • Lakawak

    Enough to get convictions in other cases. Stop embarrassing yourself.

    Regardless…this lawsuit has nothing to do with it. She already got her ridiculously unfair slap on the wrist. The “not enough” part is HER case.

  • Lakawak

    Combining the witness testimony with her fleeing is often enough evidence actually. It all adds up.

  • Lakawak

    What does Christianity have to do with anything, little troll?

  • Lakawak

    Don’t have to prove she was drunk to fire her.

  • Lakawak

    And many people have done it and AHVE gotten charged with DUI. Look…you re not going to win this, little boy. I understand..you are friends with the worthless little c*nt, so you are defending her. But here is the thing..NO ONE in your life gives a f**** about anything you say. So why would strangers on the internet?
