    Deputy resigns

    Talk about stupid. Hopefully this idiot will face charges as well as being forced to repay the county for the cost of his training (or lack of training)!

    I think part of the problem is that he was still IN training. There's no training that makes up for stupidity though, new LEO, figure what 21-24 years old?

    Phillips had just graduated from the sheriff's academy on July 10 and was still undergoing field training.
    Well at least he didn't last long enough to do any real damage, too bad he didn't get weeded out earlier.

    I can guarantee you there are many non-LEOs that "slip under the radar". He resigned, apparantely taking responsibility for his actions (I don't know if he had a choice). I can guarantee as well there are many non-LEOs that do not take responsibility for their actions. I caution against the holier than thou...

    hmm, interesting. No excuse for the intoxication part, but what is the area like, rural, a subdivision, urban... who knows?

    I'd also like to know how close the school actually was.

    ...the public intoxication charge...I'm not saying it was smart or even the right thing to be doing, but didn't it say he was just outside his home...one would expect the property would extend at least a bit beyond the walls of the home. How do you get charged with public intox on your own property? Although, if it was an apartment or condo complex that would make it a whole different story.

    Good point, but a lot of places work it this way; If you are on your property, but still in view and causing a disturbance or annoyance to the public as a result of your intoxication, you can be charged with public intox.

    Here is an example;
    I pass out drunk in my front yard, and I'm a typical mess that drunks are laying in my front yard, 20 ft from the street. Or lets say that I'm standing in my front yard drunker than a monkey shouting not so nice things at people walking by;

    Passerby's are alarmed, disgusted or annoyed, and that could be enough to make a public intox charge.

    Obviously, this guy was a nuisance to the public while he was intoxicated.

    The link in the OP is a perfect example of why I think it's a good idea when posting a link to also paste the actual text of the story. The link above now provides this:

    Apparently the officer and his buddies were drinking and outside his home discharging a shotgun,as some posters have pointed out it doesn't specify if it was in the city limits or any other non gun area It might of just been the fact they were drunk and discharging a gun,but I believe somebody called in a report about the gun shots which resulted in the cops showing up. which the chief of police may have felt was inappropriate for one of his officers to behave
