Yikes...those reports released today on the drunken deputy case are pretty revealing despite the heavy use of a Sharpee in redacting the documents from the Sheriff and County Attorney.
The cut-to-the-chase part is the bottle of Red Stag open on the patrol car console and picked up by the investigating deputy and thrown into a field. Out of sight, out of mind.
Red Stag is a Jim Beam product.
There's a suggestion of evidence tampering , but also revealing is that the intent was to hush up the whole affair except somebody was threatening to tell the media.
These are not flattering documents, but I suspect they detail an incident that happens and if someone had not snitched, we never would have known, or cared.
And what about the dog in the car. Maybe he was drinking the Red Stag ?
