Report: Passed-out deputy had at least 15 shots of vodka

A Wisconsin sheriff’s deputy was forced to resign last month after drinking vodka and passing out in his squad car while on assignment in North Dakota helping with the Dakota Access Pipeline protests.

Mike Longaecker of the Forum News Service:

A St. Croix County, Wis., sheriff’s deputy likely consumed at least 15 shots of vodka before getting behind the wheel of his squad, where he was found passed out with the vehicle’s transmission in drive and his foot on the brake.

The documents, released by the county to RiverTown Multimedia through a data request, chronicle an Oct. 12 incident while Fowler was on assignment with a four-person attachment sent to North Dakota to assist with Dakota Access Pipeline protesters.
