Boner Candidate #1: SO WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO TO GET FIRED AROUND HERE?

A central Utah police chief is “trying to put the department back together” after an investigation revealed discrepancies in record keeping and policy protocols that divided the five-man force and led three officers to resign. Ephraim officials called for the investigation last month after three patrol officers accused Police Chief Ron Rasmussen of misconduct. Rasmussen had been negligent, according to investigators from the Utah County Sheriff’s Office, but his negligence was not criminal. Rasmussen was reinstated June 28 after spending two weeks on paid administrative leave during the investigation. Upon his reinstatement, the three patrol officers — Larry Golding, Jared Hansen and Darren Pead — resigned with a strongly worded letter to city officials, leaving Rasmussen and Sgt. Len Gasser, who’d been interim chief in Rasmussen’s absence, to rebuild the department with new officers.

The Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office reported the fight broke out in Cut Off, Louisiana on August 3, 2013. Simon was walking on the side of Highway 182 in Raceland early Monday. He stopped the deputy, who was in a marked police car heading home for the night. Simon was left by his friends on the side of the road, according to the sheriff’s department.
