A scooter pig caught drunk driving. His punishment back in 2007 for DUI was probably to have to provide his own pen and plastic bag to keep his ticket book dry.

2nd DUI?
Sounds like this Trooper only caught drunks that swerved a hair harder.
OR, was this guy trying to rekindle his beer-bong and hookah days on campus?

This is what happens when standards are lowered for political reasons rather than efficiency.

I have to assume this is this Troopers 2nd offense.

This Trooper immediately should be fired from law enforcement.

Maybe he can shovel snow, or sweep the courtroom, but he should never again be behind the wheel of a car owned by the people.

They fired his ass. I doubt he will have another career in law enforcement.

This guy was found drunk, damaged car and a loaded firearm in Leesburg Ohio. While he was out on bond, he broke into his ex wife's house and stole a bunch of her underwear. WTH.

DUI??? that is it. This guy and firefighter Cain need to go work for the Columbus Police Department. They would be Officer's of the Year, year in and year out. Cain, a Columbus firefighter, is fired for having sex with an adult on station. This trooper is a drunk. Sgt. Terry McConnell from the Columbus Police department gets caught taking underage boys to his home in Reynoldsburg that he meets online (on a gay website) and which he admits and even though it is established that he has anal sex with the kids he still has a job? This is all public record. All out of Reynoldsburg P.D. Firefighter Cain you and the trooper need to apply for a position with the Columbus Police department. If the Chief of Police condones McConnell's conduct they are going to treasure you guys. Best of luck. Pillars of the Community. CPD!!!! Young boys can go hang out at McConnell's home in Reynoldsburg.
