Perkins report: Officer stopped co-worker, drove her home

A third officer, Lt. Vincent Donald, received a written reprimand. 

The discipline comes nearly three weeks after a Thanksgiving Day incident in which Barker was about to head to work intoxicated, according to Perkins police reports. 


After more than a week of delays, township trustees met Tuesday night to mete out the discipline, and finally agree to release police Chief Ken Klamar's internal report on the incident.


Klamar's six-page report finally details Alexander's role: He was on duty and driving a police cruiser when he stopped Barker's vehicle at about 2 a.m. Thanksgiving morning on West Perkins Avenue. 


He then gave her a ride home, although he never wrote a police report to document his activities, Klamar's report said.
