Deputy Justin Smith of the Erie County Sheriff's Office resigned this week, amid a handful of internal charges.
Department records (first reported on by Fox 8
) describe Smith acting inappropriately during a dinner with other officers in Columbus. "At one point, he allegedly used a racial slur when talking about local attorney Geoffrey Oglesby," according the news station.
Smith also vomited on the table and blacked out the evening's events.
Thursday was his last day with the office. (His resignation was permitted as an alternative to termination.)
