When a former cop got arrested for DWI, he told the deputy arresting him that it was a declaration of war.
Former Monroe County Sheriff's Deputy Robert Glazier was in serious trouble. He was pulled over in Livingston County, accused of driving drunk with an 11-year-old boy in the car. The police report shows Glazier pleading over and over to be let go. When the Livingston County Sheriff's Deputies didn't, the report shows Glazier drew a line in the sand.
Glazier was a veteran of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office. The deputy arresting him is from Livingston County and the arrest report shows Glazier turned to him at court and said, “You know this declares war between the two departments. I'm not saying, but that's the way it's going to be.”
Glazier was pulled over September 7 on I-390 in Avon. Drivers called 911 saying they saw the truck, he's accused of driving, swerving in and out of its lane. According to the deputy's report, Glazier asked, “Can't you guys just give me a break?” Then he asked if they “could just get rid of the 911 recording.”
The deputy and a sergeant said no.
The report says Glazier asked why the deputy and his sergeant “wants to do this to another cop” and accused them of “attempting to ruin his career”. In the end, the report shows the sergeant told Glazier it was “no one's fault but his for driving down the road while being intoxicated with an 11-year-old in the vehicle.”
Glazier is charged with felony DWI under Leandra's Law because of the child being in the car. He bailed himself out of the Livingston County Jail and then resigned from the Monroe County Sheriff's Office. News10NBC reached out to the Monroe County Sheriff for a comment on these comments, but we're told the sheriff is out of town.
News10NBC went through the arrest report and counted at least 10 times when Glazier pleaded to be let go. He was asking them to let him drive to the next exit and then get picked up by someone. When they denied, he kept questioning them on how they could do this to another cop.
Glazier is back in court in Avon in the middle of October.
