Part-time Sandusky officer appeals firing

Ross Glovinsky was working part-time for the Perkins Police Department in January 2011 when he was accused of operating a vehicle under the influence and leaving the scene of an Oberlin crash that was investigated by Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Though Glovinsky was charged with drunken driving, he pleaded guilty to the reduced charge of reckless operation.

Glovinsky left Perkins police after the crash, but was soon after hired by the Sandusky Police Department as a part-time officer.

In April, city manager Nicole Ard fired Glovinsky after learning about the nature of the crash and the original charges against the officer before they were reduced.

“I cannot support your continued law enforcement service with the city of Sandusky,” Ard wrote in a termination letter.

Glovinsky now works as a part-time Huron police officer, but he is scheduled to attend a hearing today with his attorney to get back his job with Sandusky.
