A Butler County, Ohio Sheriff employee was arrested for being under the influence and causing a motor vehicle accident. I’m sure he’s arrested many people for OVI in Butler County in his 19 years in the outfit. So he drives so drunk that he hits a parked car and gets a vacation!
He was arrested by the Hamilton City Police Department, the county seat. It’s also unclear if he was just given a ride home or actually booked into jail like a common criminal.
The Butler County Sheriff believes firmly in unconstitutional (show me your papers) inland checkpoints, among other very unconstitutional activity. Seems like he doesn’t hold his own employees to high enough standards.
Related coverage from Lauren Peck at Journal-News.com notes that one of Reiff’s responsibilities is as a “a street patrol supervisor” – are his actions those that are worthwhile of emulating?
