“NICHOLAS COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) — A former Nicholas County Sheriff’s deputy who lost his badge after two incidents faces a criminal charge in connection with one of them.
Former Nicholas County Sheriff David Hopkins, whose term ended Dec. 31, 2016, tells WSAZ that Justin Caprio was on duty and responded to a car accident in Nettie on Dec. 4 of last year. When Caprio arrived, he found his wife had crashed his personal car.
Hopkins says after Caprio’s wife was out of the car, he used his service weapon to shoot into the car several times.
According to a criminal complaint, the wrecked car was still sitting in the road. Hopkins is facing a charge of shooting or discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling, house, or across a public road in the state. The charge is a misdemeanor.
Hopkins says, days before that incident, Caprio disobeyed orders, refusing an order to turn over a murder suspect to the Nicholas County Sheriff’s Department. Hopkins says Caprio instead took the suspect to West Virginia State Police.”
Seriously, you just can’t make this stuff up
Are you starting to see who these people really are?
Are you beginning to see what type of person the modern police force attracts?
Who hired this guy any way?
I am sure that a normal person (Not a normal LEO as they like to refer to themselves) would have seen a dozen red flags with this guy
But no, he was a hire
Because he is the same breed as the rest of them
He just lost control and couldn’t lie or intimidate his way out of it and got busted
The day before he did this he had default hero staus because of that very same gun and badge
