Police tussle with off-duty deputy after wife is cuffed

http://www.policeone.com/investigati..._campaign=main

I think if the Sheriff didn't show, the Major would've ended up in cuffs.

The Major deserved a trip to jail for Battery on LEO. It sounds like the Major also had a DUI investigation that needed to be done on him.

The wife got out to tell the officer she was the Major's wife. She rightfully ended up in handcuffs.

The family has some obvious entitlement issues and needs put in their place.

Ditto. Shove an on duty guy when you show up in the wrong AND intoxicated? Kiss those oak leafs goodbye. It sounds like his wife was being a self-entitled ****. Fail to obey lawful order and obstruction for her. Public intox or DUI and assault on LEO for him (probably would have ended up with resisting among others once they hooked him). I'm all about professional courtesy...but that shove would have ended it.

The comments in the newspaper article are more disgusting than the actual incident.

Blue line, entitlement, take the ticket and call me, so hubby can FIX IT?

Cops pulling tasers on each other?

I know DST does weird things to people but geez....

Arresting on off duty officer always sucks. I have had to do it a few times, and they had it coming in both cases. Trouble is its hard not to feel guilty after they are demoted or terminated. Luckily in my cases there was no personal BS or politics involved.

Sounds like the Major should have taken the ride.

Used to see this behavior all the time in spouses of senior NCOs and military Officers. We called a spouse like that - 'dependapotomus' because they were usually the physical size of an adolescent hippo and felt as entitled as a Chicago area Democrat operative. They would rage loudly when they were told that their husband's rank and privilege did not extend to them.

This Sheriff's bigwig [hopefully soon to be a Sergeant in charge of the parking lot] and his wife sound like they belong in a trailer park, over in the single wide section.

Definitely self entitled. He shouldn't be a major over anything. Hopefully he'll retire and go away. Though he should have been arrested on scene.

If I were that guy's Sheriff, he wouldn't have a job come the next morning.

No kidding. I'm not one for rash decisions, but there is NO excuse for impeding an on-duty officer's actions like that.

There's already a Major Fail in place (pun accidental but it works) if the off-duty Sheriff has to come out to diffuse a situation with his own off-duty employee.

I don't care what the Major's reasoning was. He was so far out of line.

Under our current chief and system, if our brass had pulled a similar stunt, they would have been demoted or worse. The policy is clear about expectations regarding behavior on and off duty. This incident would have been a clear violation.
