Deputy Rehabs in California after Chase

Instead of facing an immediate arrest for drunk driving and speeding, a Wood County deputy fled to California for rehabilitation.

Sheriff Ken Merritt says he will not take any administrative action against Deputy Cory Six while he is in rehab. Merritt gave no explanation as to why an arrest warrant for Six wasn’t issued until several days after the incident.

On March 4, deputies followed Six for many miles of reckless speeding – at times exceeding speeds of 120 miles per hour. Six was off duty at the time and when he was finally stopped he admitted he had been drinking. An arrest warrant was issued four days later. Cory is being represented by attorney Harry Deitzler.
