Ohio State Trooper Jeremy Garner, was caught in typical hypocritical fashion Sunday night breaking many of the laws that he is paid to enforce, and it’s not his first time.
Garner was caught in an “extreme” case of drunk driving in Columbus Ohio Sunday night as he smashed his SUV into two parked cars and then attempted to flee the scene.
Investigators say his blood alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit.
According to WBNS TV, local resident Nicole Celebrezze, heard the crash and came outside to find Garner trying to drive away with a bent wheel.
She says she called 911 and ran down to the street, to see the SUV that hit her car pulling away. “He almost made it to High Street, but I don’t think he would have gotten far because his tire was sideways.”
By that time, Columbus Police were there, keeping the driver from going any further.
“He pretty much fell out of the automobile,” Celebrezze said. “That’s when I knew this was a drunk driver.”
In 2007, Grove City Police stopped him for speeding, clocking him at 69 miles per hour in a 35 zone.
He failed field sobriety tests, and registered a blood alcohol content of .209.
The test was thrown out because of a machine malfunction, but he pleaded guilty, getting 3 days in jail, two years’ probation, and a 6 month license suspension.
This type of hypocrisy is common among law enforcement as many cops seem to have an ‘above the law’ attitude when it comes to their personal time. The department will likely circle the wagons and allow Garner to keep his job; he will continue to ruin people’s lives arresting them for crimes that he himself has broken several times.
