Sheriff Describes ‘Police Corruption’ After Deputy Arrest

 

 

SWAT Sex Scandal

 

” A King County sheriff’s deputy was arrested Thursday for investigation of promoting prostitution, theft and drugs.

  But the problems extend far beyond the lone deputy, Sheriff John Urquhart said at a Thursday afternoon news briefing.

  Members of the SWAT team were aware that the deputy, Darrion Keith Holiwell, was taking brass shells from a gun range where SWAT practices and sold them. Money went to a slush fund that was said to be affiliated with the Sheriff’s Office – but Urquhart said Holiwell kept that fund secret from commanders.

  There is also evidence that Holiwell sold steroids to members of the SWAT team. But the Sheriff’s Office can’t say exactly how many deputies may be steroid users – it’s against the law for them to test.”
