Missouri State Water Patrol

Former Trooper Suing To Get Peace Officer License Back........

 

Former Missouri State Trooper, Anthony Piercy has filed suit against the Missouri Department of Public Safety and it's director, and is seeking to get his peace officer's license back.

 

In May 2014, Piercy was transporting a handcuffed man on the Lake of the Ozarks, who ended up falling from the boat and drowning. 

 

In September, Piercy was sentenced for misdemeanor negligent operation of a vehicle in the drowning death of 20 year old Brandon Ellingson.  Piercy lost his job with the Missouri State Highway Patrol. 

 

Earlier this summer, a Cole County judge ruled that the director of the Highway Patrol did not have the authority to fire Piercy, however, he cannot return to the Highway Patrol without a peace officer license........

Meramec River At Ballwin, Missouri

Drowned Woman's Family Call For Changes........

 

The family of Rose Shaw, who recently drowned in the Meramec River while trying to save a 12 year old girl that had gone underwater, is calling for a swimming ban along the Meramec River. 

 

Shaw's family says that too many people have lost their lives in the Meramec River, so swimming should not be allowed in order to prevent this type of tragedy from happening again.

 

Currently, there are signs posted stating that "Drowning Hazard Exists, Swimming and Wading Not Recommended"........
