Franklin Co. Deputy Denies Driving While Impaired


A Franklin County Sheriff's deputy pleaded not guilty to driving while impaired Friday.

Officers pulled over detective Scott Crossley Tuesday morning while he was off-duty.

Crossley is a decorated member of the sheriff's office who was awarded the Central Ohio Crime Stoppers Officer of the Month award in 2010 for a bust of a car full of prescription pills.

He was stopped while off-duty near the intersection of Olentangy River and Henderson Roads just before 3 a.m.

According to police reports, Crossley's vehicle was seen weaving and crossing a dotted center line while going 65 miles per hour, which is 15 mph over the speed limi

Crossley lost his license and was assigned to a non-driving position.

This is not the first time Crossely has been pulled over for OVI.

Records show in 2006 he was pulled over by the Ohio Highway Patrol for the same offense. He refused a blood alcohol test in that case as well, and later pleaded guilty to an amended charge of physical control. He was placed on two years community control.
