One of the two Montgomery men arrested last month in connection with a hit-and-run accident was a Sandwich police officer, according to multiple sources.

Kendall County deputies arrested Mikel J. Brown, 33, of Montgomery, on July 20 on a felony charge of obstructing justice.(Read 's original report here.)

Sandwich Police Chief Richard A. Olson confirmed on Aug. 6 that Brown is a Sandwich police officer.

According to a July 30 media release, Brown knowingly provided false information to a detective regarding a single-vehicle accident in Montgomery. Brown told the detective he had no knowledge of Mark Matczak's involvement in the hit-and-run, which ocurrred on April 8, said Dep. Wayne Dial.

Matczak, 40, of Montgomery, was arrested on July 21 on felony charges of falsely reporting the theft of a motor vehicle and disorderly conduct.(Read the original report here.)

Matczak drove his vehicle into a garage door while intoxicated and called Brown for advice, Dial said. Brown allegedly told Matczak to report the vehicle as stolen.

The Kendall County Sheriff's Office did not report a connection between the two arrests or mention Brown's employment with the Sandwich Police Department in its original media releases.

Brown is on leave from the Sandwich Police Department due to an injury, according to Olson. A Sandwich police commission will investigate the circumstances of Brown's arrest later this year, he said.

Several local business directories list Matczak as an American Family Insurance agent. An employee at American Family Insurance's Montgomery office said Matczak no longer worked for the company, however.

Sandwich cops and baseball coaches/insurance agents are not only getting away with DUI's but obstruction of justice also. So, are we really that surprised?
