Columbus Ohio Authorities in Ohio says two Delaware County deputies and one Ohio State Highway patrolman have been summonded for a misdemeanor count of failing to prevent an offense or apprehend an officer when a drunk man they let go at a Taco Bell restaurant passed away after they left him go.
Police said the officers found a 22 year old man whose name was not revealed in the report drunk in his truck on the median of an interstate on July 28. The officers did not arrest the drunk driver for driving under the influence charges because when they found him in his truck he was not driving the vehicle.
Police said the officers took the drunk person to a Taco Bell restaurant thinking he would call for someone to take him home. But the man died one hour later when he was hit by a vehicle while he was walking.
The Columbus Disptach newspaper said the Delaware County sheriff told the newspaper the officers should have arrested the drunk driver and not take him to a fast food restaurant so he could get a ride home.
