Sheriff’s got problems

In Montana, Cascade County Sheriff Bob Edward has been asked by a state ethics panel to surrender all of his coroner and peace officer certifications.

The request (or order) comes after an incident involving the sheriff and his girlfriend at a law enforcement conference.

The county commissioners can not fire the sheriff but they can yank his certifications.

Edward says he was involved in a loud disturbance with his girlfriend at the conference.

Edward did say his behavior that night was “not the best.”
