Cop Drives Into Pole Going 70-75 MPH, Wasn't Wearing Seatbelt, Wasn't Responding To Emergency, Collects Workers Comp & Still Being Paid (InformationLiberation)
Wednesday October 9th, 2013
Here's an example of one of those speeding cops 20/20 caught on camera. This cop drove his car into a pole while speeding, wasn't wearing a seatbelt, and wasn't responding to an emergency, yet he's collecting workers comp on the taxpayers dime and still being paid while the police "investigate."
An internal affairs investigation will decide whether Deputy Adewale Olukoju is punished after he drove into a Marguerite light pole at 70-75 MPH.
Deputy Adewale Olukoju, 44, who was not wearing a seatbelt when he sped 70-75 MPH into a light pole in June, continues to collect a paycheck during the investigation, OCSD Lt. Jeff Hallock said.
Olukoju has not returned to work though, Hallock said, because he is on leave for worker's compensation.
Olukoju was ejected from his police cruiser after he crashed while traveling south on Marguerite near Vista Del Lago. He was not responding to an emergency, authorities said. The deputy is not suspected of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash.
