PIKE – After an indictment filed with the Ohio Supreme Court involving 16 counts of theft, tampering, and other charges, a Pike County Judge has suspended Sheriff Charles Reader from his duties as the county sheriff.
In Reader’s filing to the Ohio Supreme Court, he stated that his ongoing criminal case has adversely effected his duties involving ongoing criminal cases.
Reader who has appeared in court several times since July is getting served more papers by a deputy. You can see that the deputy is nervous when pulling up to issue the paperwork to Reader. When the Deputy gets out of the car and gives paperwork to Reader he asks him how he’s doing. Thats when the suspected sheriff says better if you get the F off my property, then he purposely tosses the paperwork to the ground.
Its all captured on the deputies body cam, watch… strong language.
