Cop Gets Vacation for Driving Drunk

The information below was shared by a person concerned about the double standards acted upon by Robert Reiff, who happens to be a police employee.

Date of Incident: 9/21/14
Individual Responsible: Robert Reiff
Contact Information: http://www.butlersheriff.org / @butlersheriff / (513) 785-1000 / https://www.facebook.com/ButlerCountySO

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?

    What vacation? What double standards? I can’t find the arrest on line. Maybe someone else can. It would seem like this article is very slanted and missing a lot of information.

    Hmmmm.
    How would arresting the officer be a double standard?
    Or is it just because he was suspended?
    If he gets fired…..and then isn’t convicted….he sues (and wins) to get his job back, back pay, and a payout for wrongful termination. It’s FAR cheaper to suspend him with pay while waiting this to conclude.

    Thanks for another article about the police doing it right

    I agree with most of what you said aside from the suspended with pay. They can suspend without pay and not get sued all they need is a policy in place that says they are able to do so. So I’d say it’s a half double standard.

    I did a simple search and found it…maybe you should try using a search engine…like google or duckduckgo…

    I know I’m gonna get trolled and insulted and what not for this but, here’s a coincidence, Robert S. Reiff is the name of a DUI lawyer in Florida…weird, right?

  • bub

    I wish I had a job that would give me time off with pay for getting a DUI. But I’m too smart to be a cop, so there goes that.

  • bub

    And, of course, when I finally DO get to read an actual article about this, I find out that he is NOT getting paid while being suspended. I’ve tasted toe jam before (for all those cops out there-“I had to put my foot in my mouth” is just a saying).

    You are a fucked up prick. You are a fucking proven habitual liar.

  • JC

    I went to your house last night. I fed your dogs some food.

  • Daniel Petersen

    Nothing to see here move along…
    Police state double standards are of no concern to civilians.

  • steve

    Save your breath, t.

  • steve

    You can’t get passed the double fence and you would have been on video. Remember asshole I have an FFL license and own a gun sales business, so the security is set up well. Hope you like that long ass driveway.

  • JC

    I’m glad you found it. I did use google but got nothing. The post you found tells more of the story than this copblock article.

  • StarWish624

    He looks like “Scotty” from Star Trek (TOS). But, if it was you or me, our buts would be behind bars, and be costing a lot for lawyers, court costs, etc., etc., etc..

    Boats and Corvettes, this is one well paid drunk driver .

  • Common Sense

    Oh wait, CB got it wrong again?

  • JC

    I just climbed the fence with my martial arts skills. You are trying to intimidate me. You think you are tuf.

  • JC

    Another attempt by graham colson to be an impostor. How pathetic

  • ThirtyOneBravo

    Where’s the problem here? The officer was arrested, he was suspended pending the close of this case and he’s off the road. Do you realize that it’s financially better for the city/county to do it this way? Where’s the double standard?

  • Jason Jay Bob Atkins

    well there’s the problem. The law protects cops so well that acting reasonably and firing or charging a dirty cop creates liability. Police Unions are the problem. Personal Professional Liability Insurance is the answer. Stop the problem at the root.
