“A Polk County deputy has turned in his badge after his wife and mother-in-law took his patrol car out for a joyride. Officials said the 44-year-old deputy resigned Monday after serving 21 years with the sheriff’s office.

The arrest report said his wife and mother-in-law face charges of vehicle theft, theft of a firearm and impersonating a law-enforcement officer. His wife also faces charges of possession of a firearm of a convicted felon.
A third person riding in the back seat also was arrested.”

A law enforcement officer can’t survive the humiliation of having his wife and mother-in-law take his patrol car out for a joyride. Any civilian who witnessed the spectacle of the deputy’s spouse driving erratically in his patrol car lost all respect for him. That’s as bad as if a pastor’s wife ran down Main Street naked as a Jaybird except for her Sunday church hat. A minister would be forced to resign if his lovely wife has a penchant for streaking.

I would love to know the story behind that third person riding in the back seat. I have a feeling that not only is the deputy’s wife crazy, but she’s also fooling around with that individual riding in the back seat.

It’s a pit that the deputy’s 21-year career came to such an inglorious end. The poor guy needs to make a brand new start in life, and his first move should be to divorce his wife.
