Sheriff Roberts has placed the deputy on leave
The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office has released the following statement:
On the evening of Friday, Sept. 11, 2020, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office was made aware of "inappropriate statements" made by one of our Patrol deputies while he was on-duty and in uniform.
Clackamas County is currently in a state of emergency due to several wildfires in our county. It appears the deputy was aware he made these comments while on video. At the time of the comments, the deputy was tasked with ensuring that residents knew of the wildfire hazards while he was patrolling the area.
This deputy has been placed on administrative leave while our Professional Standards Unit investigates this potential violation of policy.
The video is being shared extensively and can be seen here
