Highland Heights demotes Mark Joseph, the sergeant who yapped about teen suicide attempt


"Hosing your dad's career is educational and fun!"
Something tells us Peter Joseph has been grounded indefinitely. Perhaps even had his driving privileges revoked. The son of Highland Heights sergeant Mark Joseph, Peter gave Dad an early Father’s Day present a few weeks back when he posted on his facebook page that a schoolmate had attempted suicide. To make matters worse, the kid divulged his source unprompted, prefacing the info with, “As many of you may know, my father is a police sergeant in the city of Highland Heights and he gets the whole scoop on most things.” Yo, son: stop snitchin’. ... Mark Joseph is a sergeant no more. As confirmed by Highland Heights Police Chief Jim Cook, Joseph has been demoted to patrolman. Asked if there was something more than the confidential leak that had Joseph reprimanded so severely, Chief Cook hedged: “Let’s just say he was demoted and leave it at that. I wouldn’t want to comment any further. The confidential information was part of the charges.” As an aside, if you’re in the mood for some wierdness, check out this obsessive anti-Mark Joseph page. Its creator seems somewhat pleased about he demotion news. Like, maniacally so. – Gus Garcia-Roberts
