A West Union Police officer was recently arrested following an alleged domestic dispute in the Ripley Post Office. According to a report from the Ripley Police Department, on Aug. 23, at approximately 2:39 p.m., Officer Kevin Little of the Ripley Police department was advised of a fight at the Ripley Post Office on U.S. 52. According to the report submitted by Officer Little, the argument involved a man and two women. The man was later identified by Ripley Police Officer Brad Liming to be West Union Police Officer Shaun Asher. In his report, Little states that he approached Asher, who refused to cooperate and calm down. After Officer Little had tried several times to get Asher under control, he warned Asher that he would be shot with the taser due to his "anger being out of control." According to Little, Asher stated that his girlfriend, a juvenile, and his wife, Jennifer Asher, were arguing and that he was trying to break it up. Little advised the girlfriend to leave the premises. According to the report, Asher continued to persist, cursing and, at times becoming uncontrollable. A short time later, Lieutenant David Benjamin and Sergeant Donald Newman of the Ripley Police Department arrived on the scene. The two advised that Asher had been recently warned of his behavior at a bar at 19 Main Street. Allegedly, Asher then stated that he was a cop and that he would "get out of it." All officers at the scene attempted to get Asher into a cab or other form of transportation, but Asher refused and told the officers to arrest him. According to the officers, Asher allegedly turned to his wife and told her, "Shut up or I'll hit you up side the head." Upon uttering this statement, Asher was arrested for verbal domestic violence and persistent disorderly conduct. Asher was then placed in a police cruiser where he continued to curse and attempted to kick and hit the windows. Sergeant Newman contacted the Brown County Sheriff's Office to advise of Asher's transportation to the Brown County Jail. He also contacted West Union Police Chief Roy Stricklet about the arrest. Chief Stricklet had no comment on the matter. Allegedly, Asher continued to struggle during his travel to the Brown County Jail, claiming that he was going to fight everyone in the jail. "Asher was afforded ample opportunities to keep himself out of jail," reported Sergeant Newman. "He decided not to use them." As of press time, it remained unclear if any court action had been taken on this case. The People's Defender will have more on this case as it becomes available.
