Marshall County Sheriff Norman Dalton threatened to fire any employees who criticized him or the department in a memo last month to his staff, The (Columbia) Daily Herald reports this afternoon.
Dalton’s edict came after the Marshall Tribune reported that the sheriff’s daughter’s boyfriend had been promoted from dispatcher to deputy sheriff.
The Daily Herald quotes the Oct. 28 memo:
“Drew Binkley was given the position of deputy sheriff because of his hard work, dedication and years of service … not because he is screwing the sheriff’s daughter. …
“P.S. If you screw with me … I’ll use # 10 on you,” he states referring to a statute in the policy manual.
