If you don’t have a doctor’s note you’d better show up for work.

Piercy had arrested 20-year-old Brandon Ellingson on suspicion of boating while intoxicated. Ellingson was taken into a boat, placed in a life vest and handcuffed behind his back.

Piercy was taking him for a field sobriety test when the incident report indicates Ellingson stood up, stepped to the boat’s edge and fell or jumped overboard. Ellingson’s life vest came off. His body was recovered June 1.

Piercy has been a trooper for 18 years.

Safety first with these guys. As as very often the case, enforcement activities are more dangerous to everybody than the infractions.

The trooper here, and the Missouri State Troopers, could be in heap big trouble here. Cuffing a guy bEHIND HIS BACK and then not putting the PFD on correctly?

Awful awful bit of police work. Criminally negligent IMO.

I got my head chopped off in a thresher incident and missed no more than 20 minutes of work, while they stapled it back on.

I saw a Burt Reynolds movie called “Gator” where his brother was drowned by the sheriff in similar fashion. I wonder if the deputy had seen that movie?

Could be but he or they won’t. Other than tick off a superior or someone politically or privileged or protected, there is nothing they can do that will get them in trouble. The peasantry is fair game, anything they do to the peasants is o.k.

No worries! Piercy went home safe.

And he got a paid vacation. It's all good, unless you were Brandon and his family.

No dogs were hurt in the making of this drowning.

>> on suspicion of boating while intoxicated

I’m guessing Ellingson had his beer goggles on.

So are we going to fault LEOs for arrestees that decide to spring from a moving patrol car?
