Sandusky officer cleared of excessive force, falsification accusations

Administrators cleared a Sandusky officer of allegations he used excessive force to arrest a woman and later falsified the crime report.

Shawna Goode, 31, told police she was just trying to retrieve her purse from a locked bar Feb. 26 when Officer Sean Orman got in her face.

After an escalating argument between the two, Orman arrested Goode and charged her with disorderly conduct intoxicated.

There was just one problem: A breathalyzer test at the Erie County jail showed absolutely no alcohol in her system.    

Sandusky Municipal Court prosecutor Lynne Gast-King later dropped the charge, only to level another charge against Goode for disorderly conduct — for her behavior after she was arrested. 

**WARNING** The above video of Goode's arrest contains profane language that could be offensive to some viewers.
