First and foremost, I hope Tim and Louis are going to be OK. But I am deeply troubled at the events that took place late Saturday night, early Sunday morning. Tim is on Lt Graybeal's shift and they were having a shift party. That is perfectly fine, but why would anyone (let alone a sworn Law Enforcement Officer), let someone drive off to go get more beer in the condition they were in? Then the sheriff tell's all the supervisor's to contact their people after the wreck, to make sure no one talks about the party they were having because it's election time and it could look bad! Well, it looks bad! I am fed up! Sheriff you have no control over your people! There is no leadership! THP is talking about possible charges being handed down. I hope it isn't just with Louis and Tim. Their supervisor's or at least other deputies were there, they could of stopped them! They did contribute and violated the law by letting them drive off intoxicated. I can promise if a citizen of the county was having a private party or maybe a public bar that let someone drive off drunk and they wrecked, the same sheriff would have no problem charging them and have in the past. I just wonder if the Sheriff Graybeal will do an internal investigation or even call in TBI considering his son might have been there at the party? People from the Daniel Boone High School area knows how hard it is to get the sheriff to do an investigation when his people may be involve or have knowledge of a crime and didn't do anything about it.

Hearing this news took a little bit of the sting out of the 256.00 speeding ticket the county gave me for Christmas.

Well this is interesting! It makes you wonder if this is happening during an election, what kind of activity is going on the rest of the year? This is out of control and I'm tired of the cover ups! Is it too much to ask for an honest sheriff?

Tired of the nepotism. Tired of the cover ups. The sheriffs Dept. is out of control and has been for a long time. Washington County deserves better.Many drink and drive all the time and get covered up when stopped.

I didnt realize we lived in a place where people COULD BE CONTROLLED. Are u all seriously going to take this and try and use it for an election? Good lord people they dont even have a report yet and your trying to hang everyone out to dry for craig fords use. Because why? Hes gonna keep everyone on short leashes? Take away free choice??? This is what it sounds like ur asking for. If they were drinking they will pay the price for that. Theres been other officers that have went that way and had charges filed and been fired. Hell most of them are craig ford supporters now... imagine that. Lets stop screaming until its taken care of and stop trying to use this against someone who had nothing to do with it. That is unless ur wanting a comminust state where no one has free choice... then of course blame the sheriff...
SHAME on you people

Yep cause we want an entire county of cops acting like jonesborough pd. Get over urself. If they were drinking they will be punished just like every other person that makes bad choices does. Your lies and sillyness wont make a bit of difference but take away whats left of their diginity. Stop using the choices of others to try and push mr. Ford someplace he cant handle and doesnt belong.

I agree wholeheartedly!!! After all his lies, half-truths, mudslinging, and unprofessional behavior during this campaign, it has become quite apparent that Mr. Ford (first and foremost) isn't qualified to be Sheriff. His constant negative attacks is very indicative of his lack of character and a meanness that must run deep in his soul. He is NOT Sheriff material!!! On the other hand Sheriff Graybeal hasn't taken a negative response and has maintained his professional and dignified demeanor. Now he IS the very epitome of what a good Sheriff should be!!!
