Loudoun deputy indicted for bribery

A Loudoun County sheriff's deputy was indicted by a county grand jury Tuesday on charges of bribery and filing a false report, according to the Loudoun sheriff's office.

Deputy Jason C. Warren, of Kearneysville, W. Va., responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle in the area of Red Rum Drive in Ashburn around 1:15 a.m. on Sept. 15, according to Loudoun sheriff's spokesman Kraig Troxell.

Warren, 27, solicited a bribe from the female driver of the vehicle during the course of the investigation, according to police. The sheriff's office declined to comment on the nature of the bribe.

The female driver was alone in the vehicle at the time, Troxell said.

Warren is accused of discarding a misdemeanor drug charge against the driver and filing a false report to a supervisor, according to police.

Troxell said that the sheriff's office contacted the female driver after learning of the allegations on Sept. 19 from another deputy. The office began an internal and criminal investigation into the matter, police said.

Warren, who joined the sheriff’s office in Dec. 2008 as a patrol deputy assigned to the Field Operations Division, is currently on administrative leave without pay, according to authorities.

Where are the usual morons who insist that there is a Blue Wall of Silence? Had it not been for a fellow deputy no one would ever have known about this crime.

I don't know what's more stupid, accepting the "bribe" (nudge nudge, wink wink), or bragging about it to your fellow officers. Either way, this bum deserves to lose his job.

whatsreallygoingon,
Exactly how does a caucasian officer's indictment have anything to do with the criminal conduct of minorities?
You want an example...how about the minority charged in the attempted murder of 4 people in College Park after a bar fight.
Are these crimes comparable? Absolutely not. One was stupid the other potentially deadly to 4 people.
