Greenbrier Sheriff Request State Police to Investigate Deputy Bar Brawl

From today’s Register-Herald:

Sheriff asks State Police to probe deputy bar brawl

Register-Herald Reporter

Greenbrier County Sheriff Roger Sheppard said Tuesday a request has been made asking State Police to investigate a possible bar brawl involving two off-duty deputies.

“There was an incident at a place called Lucy’s Bar, and when the officers got there, they found that possibly a couple of off-duty deputies were involved,” Sheppard said. “I took it to Prosecutor Kevin Hanson the next day.”

Located in Fairlea, Lucy’s Bar operates video poker machines and is considered a sports bar by patrons.

Records from 911 indicated a “bar fight” call was logged at 2:43 a.m. Sunday. Three deputies responded to Lucy’s Bar. The names of the deputies allegedly involved in the fight have not been released, Sheppard said.

Hanson said Sheppard asked for an outside investigation of the incident.

“I wrote a letter Monday to the State Police colonel and requested an investigation,” Hanson said Tuesday. “I have not yet heard back from the State Police.”

Sheppard also said he had not been contacted by State Police concerning the incident.
