IRVINE, Ky. (AP) - Charges against a central Kentucky police
chief arrested by his own officers have been dismissed.
Special prosecutor Charles Hardin says the charges against
Irvine Police Chief James Crowe were dropped because the arrest
citation did not have sufficient reason for the charges.
Crowe had been facing charges of tampering with a witness and
resisting arrest. He was arrested late last year by former Irvine
Police Capt. Chris Cox and former Officer Shaun Moore after the
chief reprimanded the pair for testifying on behalf of Estill
County Constable Dennie Glenn Young. Young faces multiple felony
Since 2004, Irvine police officers have been under orders by
city government to avoid Young. Cox and Moore were suspended Jan. 1
and fired at a Jan. 7 city council meeting on charges of
insubordination and unbecoming conduct.
