Perry Township Constable's Office Making News Again
Fox 59 News' Russ McQuaid is on top of the latest controversy surrounding the Perry Township Constable's office. McQuaid is the one who broke the story last year on an FBI investigation into allegations that someone in Constable Roy Houchins' office was selling badges. A man carrying a badge as Deputy Constable, Lawrence Walter, was arrested in Broad Ripple last night after he got into a scuffle with an IMPD police officer, Sgt. Dean Fischer, outside Landsharks. Walters wrestled Sgt. Fischer to the ground and tried to take his taser away from him according to a police spokesman. McQuaid reported that Walters also worked as a security guard at Wishard Hospital and was well on his way to becoming a U.S. Secret Service agent. McQuaid says Walters has been terminated from his deputy constable and security guard jobs following his weekend arrest.
