Deputy allows drunk woman to re-enter a vehicle, drive away and crash into a parked car


Case Number: 
02-067

On Tuesday, October 14, 2002, at 2123 hours, Deputy Shawn Baab conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle occupied by Timothy W. Knight Jr. on West Third Street at Infirmary Road in Jefferson Township. Mr. Knight alleges that during the traffic stop, Deputy Baab used excessive force on him and falsely arrested him for Disorderly Conduct. Mr. Knight also alleges that when he asked Deputy Baab why he was going to jail, Deputy Baab told him it was "for being a smart ass."

Additionally, when Deputy Baab's in-car video was reviewed, he did not use the camera's remote transmitter, and he allowed an intoxicated female occupant, identified as Jessica Ann Guise, to return to the vehicle. Ms. Guise subsequently began driving away in the vehicle and crashed into another parked vehicle in the lot of the Drexel Beer and Wine Drive-Thru, 5474 West Third Street.
