This guy pulled me over once for speeding. I have never had an officer be so rude to me in my life. Plus, he actually had his girlfriend (or wife?) come up to my car just to show off. We were way out in the county. Guy was a complete ass. Maybe I can bring my girlfriend to the jail to show you off now biatch!

Well....he was a West T cop before he become a Vigo Co cop. Maybe he's just going back to what comes natural for him?

at least we have a good sheriff who does not tolerate crime committed by those who are supposed to uphold the law.

To be honest Im a little saddened. This guy has responded a number of times to issues in my area. I found him to be prompt, personable and pprofessional. I find it odd however that this guy gets nailed for personal use pain killers and we have DTF guys (one in particular) that has been traficking drugs for years with no repercussion whatsoever.

If he has not committed any crimes, he will be fine.
Do you think it is your friend in the DTF that is snitching on him ?

One of Ewing's campaign pledges was a clean department. said he wouldnt tolerate any issues within his department. Guess he was right, he's not tolerating anything.

He certainly found it tolerable enough to hire a fired and degraced ISP officer in Jason Fischer. Cerny supported another candidate in the sheriffs race. Anyone that had an interest in any other campaign had better watch their butt.

I wonder if he got hooked on the pills when he got bit by a dog while on duty in West Terre Haute a few years ago? Personally, I think doctors are too quick to give pain pills to everyone for the least little bit of a boo-boo. I've heard once you start taking narcotics it's a hard thing to quit. I throw away any prescriptions the doc's give me for that stuff. Truly afraid to take them if I can avoid it at all costs. I'll deal with the pain. I once attended the same church as Cerny, he was a nice guy to everyone there.

I forgot about that. I wonder if that video is still on YouTube? That was too funny.

Sounds like the Sheriff needs to start cleaning up the department. Not only did he hire a ISP officer that was fired for destroying a police car. Now he has a officer with a drug problem. Its getting hard to know who is a crimmnal or a police officer. In Terre Haute it has awlays been that way.The Buddy system does not work!See you all at the polls when it is election time

It's amusing how some of you people instantly know everything about everyone. You're probably the people that are sitting at your computers right now with trash and shit stacked all around your ashtrays next to you while your babies run around the dirty house in nothing but a dirty diaper.(Which I feel very bad for children that have to be raised like that.) Waiting until the first of the month so you can sell your welfare checks for cash to buy booze and smokes and a little extra smoke? Am I right? I mean I can assume and act like I know everything about everyone else too right?

Now to the point. Unless any of you know personally or have worked with this deputy, you do not truly know IF he has a drug problem, IF he's dealing or IF he's getting them for a sick family member that lives with chronic pain. So piss off until you know the truth. Mark Allan and Patrece Dayton are very good journalists, but they are NOT the gospel.

P.S. Only 10 more days until "payday" right?

I totally agree w u! I personally don't know him, but everyone is quick to judge! Leave him alone innocent until proven guilty!

Per the news sites, the deputy's name who was arrested for doctor shopping and drug misuse was Derek Cerny.
Jason Fischer was recently hired on to VCSD and was not arrested, although he was previously released from his post with ISP.
