Deputy engages in improper conduct while preventing a camera from entering courts building


Mr. Mark Newberry alleged that Court Services Deputy Phillip Dill refused to allow him to enter the Common Pleas Court building with a camera in his possession. Mr. Newberry alleged that when he later re-entered the building without the camera, Court Services Deputy Dill physically escorted him from the building. Mr. Newberry claimed that his right index finger was scratched during the incident. Mr. Newberry also said that Court Services Deputy Dill told him "I should kick your ass."

Sergeant Kurt Althouse investigated this complaint by obtaining a copy of the offense report submitted by Court Services Deputy Dill and conducting interviews with Court Services Deputy Michael Williams and Court Services Deputy Dill. Please see the report submitted by Sergeant Althouse. Sergeant Althouse found Mr. Newberry's complaint to be without merit.

It should be noted that Sergeant Althouse identified a separate performance issue during this investigation in which Court Services Deputy Dill's actions were deemed to be improper conduct.
