This is an embarrassment for the City of Charleston. Hopefully the mayor will make sure this incident is investigated throughly. If the incident is determine to be true both officers should be terminated. If they are allowed to come back to work it would destroy the public perception and trust of the Charleston Police dept.

What is your obsession with Jenn? Every other post you make is about her or you mentioning her name. Get over it, and do you ever sleep or work because you are glued to this website. I am up taking my kids to school and off to work, but you must do niether because every forum I see on here your name is the one that was the last poster. As for Pridemore he is a good guy, and if this was him it's his mistake and he will pay for it, and somehow I doubt it is since he has made calls to someone I know to come pick him up in Beckley because he was drunk, don't THINK he would put his job on the line but idk I hope not.

Re-read your comment " I guess he take me to court" and you smash others on here for there sentence structure, grammer, spelling and whatever else it is you can nit pick at 24-7 literally.

The Huntington Police Department arrested Steven "Matt" Webb sometime early Sunday morning after an alcohol-related incident, CPD Chief Brent Webster said.

Webb was in a vehicle with Sgt. Michael Pridemore, Webster said. Pridemore was not arrested, Webster said.

So Pridemore wasn't arrested because he likes his job which I am guessing the only reason he is on administrative leave is because he was in the car with the possibility that he was intoxicated as well. Whichever it doesn't matter because it's well known you can have a criminal record and still be a police officer. Pridemore cannot control another adult so he should not be in any trouble! As for Webb, never heard of him but I disagree with drinking and driving big time.

Do you really think people on here care what you are doing? Is topix really that important to you that before you can leave your house in the morning you need to get on here and find out who is mentioning names and whos not?

Are you following this jodi chic to see what she says? Are you obessed with the jlynn chic as well? Seems to me you really need a life instead spending time on here to see who jodi is posting about and to see who is mentioning jlynn.

I'm shocked that with both of them being officers of the law that pridemore would let webb drive. He needs punished just as much as he knows better and should be setting an example.

It'll get swept under the rug, just as incidents of this nature involving any active officers is.

I hope they do catch you! You should go to jail for drinking while driving along with this Officer. It's [people like you and the officer that kill innocent people.

That is jenn and she is stalking jodi! And can you not read she admitted she has typing errors and ONLY corrects people who call other people stupid ignorant morons etc and half their words are spelled wrong! Like you calling someone stupid and saying they need hooked on phonix and you cant spell for sh*t i PROMISE everyone knows who you are! And i thought you said your PEACE along time ago yet you still keep running that c*ck sucker of yours! I dont see how you spend anytime with your child when your fat a%$ is ALWAYS on here!

Ps there is a difference in making a typing error and just flat out not being able to spell like you!

Maybe it's just me but I can't understand how a person is ever going to get good at drinking and driving when they won't allow us to practice.

first off, yes im on topix everyday, i dont try and hide it like you and others or make some excuse as to why i am on here.

second, no i dont work, i am fully disabled and go to school full time. i depend on everyone else to take care of by collecting food stamps and a check!

third, did i say pridemore was arrested? did i say he was drunk? um no i didnt!! im so glad you know seem to know everyone! by the way jlynn, if you know all these cops as you claim, then why didnt they help you with the whole stolen check issue? why didnt they help you when falsified a police report against your ex husband?

finally, i stand by what i said before i am not surprised that pridemore was involved!!!!! if you truly knew him as you claim, then you would no he has also made his fair share of mistakes!

also, my name was NOT the last name on every post. you have resorted to stalking me!!! wow, you must really be obsessed with me to go to any post where you see my name. thats ok, keep hatin, i love all my haters. lmfao!!!!

oh and i did read my comment again and i left one word out. you really got me on that one didnt you? however, did i call any stupid, ignorant, idiot when doing so? nope sure didnt.there is also a big difference in leaving a word out of my sentence and misspelling the simplest words, i would give an example but its more fun letting you keep making the same mistakes. it makes it easier to call you out when you are pretending to be someone else. since you stalk me so much, you should know i only correct people when they say others are stupid and half their shit is spelled wrong or improperly structered! but nice try though! im glad i stay on your mind enough that you follow me.

LMAO Are you kidding? destroy the public perception and trust of the Charleston Police Dept? No wonder we have no respect for these jokers - they even shoot their own, oh, thats right it was under "friendly fire" What a real joke. Follow this case and see where it goes, just like the ones who beat the hell out of their wives and girlfriends.
