[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.
