UPDATE: Clark Co. Sheriff Deputy not Cited for Parking in Handicapped Spot
SPRINGFIELD -- The Clark County Sheriff's Office released a statement Monday stating that the deputy accused of parking in a handicapped space in a Sheriff's Office vehicle would not be cited.
According to the release, the deputy was on a business call and did not realize he was parking in a handicapped spot.
The department's investigation concluded that the handicapped spot was not marked with an elevated sign. According to Ohio Revised Code, all parking spots for persons with disabilities should be marked with an elevated sign. Therefore, the deputy was not cited.
The Clark County Sheriff's Office acknowledged that the deputy was careless and will be disciplined.
SPRINGFIELD -- The Clark County Sheriff confirms that one of his deputy parked in a handicap spot at a local restaurant.
Denise Green of Springfield snapped photos of the SUV on her cell phone after she had dinner with her family at the Wendy's on Main Street in Springfield.
"He was on his cell phone, parked in a handicap spot, " Green explained.
There was no handicap sign in front of the spot, but there was a handicapped symbol painted on the pavement. Green told our news crew that right before she saw the truck, she was talking to her kids about following the law.
"We teach them to respect police, and then we teach them to respect the law and when you see an officer not respecting the law how can you respect either one," she explained.
We reached out to Clark County Sheriff Gene Kelly about the incident. He did say it happened and that his department is investigating.
"The investigation will reveal if a citation is to be issued or if discipline is warranted or both. But, until the investigation is complete I cannot comment on the issue. Certainly, I feel strongly that law enforcement must obey the law to enforce the law, but until the investigation is complete that is all I can say about this issue," Sheriff Kelly explained.
"I feel like he should have moved because isn't it their job to uphold stuff like that like going around stopping people from breaking the law because I'm pretty sure I would have got in trouble if I didn't move," said Kesean Redmond, of Fairborn.
Green said she gets furious every time she looks at the pictures, because she works with handicap people every day.
"Being in the health care field I felt upset, because we do have patients who come in and who are handicap, in a wheelchair and they made those spots for those people," she explained.
She hopes the deputy receives a citation and learns a lesson.
"See what their daily struggle is, see what it's like to go to the grocery store and pull out a wheel chair and have to shop that way," she explained.
