FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Allen County Sheriff David Gladieux is now facing a lawsuit for an altercation between himself and a teenaged Three Rivers Festival volunteer last July.

Sheriff Gladieux made a pre-trial deal with a special prosecutor to complete anger management and alcohol programs and make a public apology over a misdemeanor battery charge filed after Gladieux, who had been drinking that day, allegedly shoved the volunteer onto a metal tent stake when he tried to get into a closed-off area.

Now our Partners in News at ABC 21 say the volunteer’s family is suing Gladieux for $300,000 for “physical pain, mental suffering, emotional distress, humiliation, embarrassment, and unlawful and excessive force.”

The sheriff is not any different than the rest of our population when it comes to a crime of this nature and should have been arrested and charged for the crimes that he has committed and not a slap on the wrist and he was intoxicated at the moment
