Sheriff suspends deputy - - fast...

In Charleston County, S.C. the sheriff knows how to discipline a problem deputy.

According to the Post and Courier (www.postandcourier.com) Charleston County Deputy Nicholas Wagner was driving his own vehicle early Sunday, May 7, when he lost control. In more ways than one.


Wagner was charged with DUI after totaling his white Lexus SUV on I-526 about 2:00AM. A Charleston police officer reported that Wagner “smelled of an alcoholic beverage, had glassy eyes, slurred speech, and he swayed as he walked.”

The newspaper carried the story the very next day. Imagine that! And contrast that with local reporting here after an off-duty deputy smashed his take-home squad car while DUI.

How did Wagner's employer react?

Monday's newspaper also reported that Wagner's supervisors placed him on administrative leave without pay.

I wonder if Sheriff J. Al Cannon, Jr. might be about to call our McHenry County, Ill. sheriff, Keith Nygren, and explain how he was able to do that so quickly. Sheriff Cannon, when you read this, the number is 815.338.2144. We have a little problem here with a deputy who was charged in January with ten felonies and indicted, but our sheriff has kept him on the payroll.
