[OH] Police Chief Roosa drunk with gun outside apartment police were called to for fight


November, 2005 (Ohio) - Judge Mark Bogen placed Maineville Police Chief Andrew ("Andy") Roosa on one year of probation after the felony weapons charge was dropped, suspending seven months of jail time between the charges. He also ordered Roosa to undergo drug and alcohol evaluation. Last month Lebanon police responded to a call about a fight involving a gun at an apartment. News articles don't say who he was fighting with. The chief, who refused a breath test to measure the amount of alcohol in his blood, smelled of alcohol and was slurring his speech. Roosa pled guilty to having a weapon while intoxicated. (That's pretty deep when you pause to think it's the chief. Who sets the standard in Maineville?) My prayers are with him and whoever he was fighting with.

    He wasn't in a fight with anyone that night. He is a good person and was an excellent officer not only as the cheif in Maineville but also when he worked for the township and the sheriff's department. He cared not only for his job but also for the people in the community and gave back to the city in every way he could before they turned their back on him. He made one mistake and gets crucified on websites like this. You people should be ashamed of yourselves placing a good man like him next to articles about abusers and child killers. He is a good person who made a mistake, not unlike everyone else in this world.

    1. "Crucified?" Are you serious? Andy admitted that he was drunk and had a weapon. There was no bias against him in this report. If someone does something and gets arrested for it, then it gets printed. Roosa doesn't get special treatment just because he is (or was?) a police officer. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. Besides, this isn't the only questionable thing Roosa's done as a police officer. I knew him in the 1990's and like him, but he gets reported when he messes up, not unlike everyone else in this world.

  2. Wrong. You obviously do not know him.
