Deputy DUI Involved Multiple Agencies

More information is coming to light about the traffic stop involving a drunk and speeding Wood County Deputy Cory Six. Today we are learning that the March 4 incident involved multiple law enforcement agencies.

The pursuit began when an on-duty deputy followed a speeding and reckless vehicle leaving a strip club. Six was driving the vehicle, but he was not alone. Two state troopers who had been partying with Six at the “gentlemen’s club” were also in the vehicle. RCNN sources say the drunken officers were removed from the scene by a superior in their department.

Further, it has been revealed that two off-duty Vienna police officers arrived on scene to retrieve Six and his vehicle.

Six is said to be in a rehabilitation facility in California. Wood County Sheriff Ken Merritt says he will take no administrative action against Six while he is in rehab. The county has requested a special prosecutor to take the case.
