Accountability & Ethics
Sheriff’s deputies Jim Arthur and Alvin Smith pulled over an out-of-state car that was weaving late at night on a county highway. The deputies approached the car and
saw an elderly man slumped over the driver’s wheel. The man was babbling incoherently. Arthur and Smith believed the man was drunk. They lifted him from the car,
handcuffed him, and manhandled him into the back of their cruiser. By the time they arrived at the county jail, the man had passed out. They searched him and removed
his wallet. They determined from his ID that he was MacArthur Sims, 58 years old, and that he was from a nearby state. He was carrying $425 in his wallet and appeared
to be well dressed. Arthur told Smith and two jail officers, “This guy’s too tanked to book. Let’s put him in the drunk tank where he can sleep it off.” Arthur and
Smith, along with the jail officers, carried Sims into one of the drunk tanks and placed him on a cot. There were 12 other men in the drunk tank being held on various
drinking-related charges. No one administered any type of blood test to determine Sims’ intoxication level. “The deputies who brought you in here took your wallet with
over $400 in it. We have it in a bag for you. We put you in the tank to sleep it off. You can post $250 bond and leave now if you want. But you’ll have to appear
before Judge Brown tomorrow on drunk-driving charges or forfeit the bond.” When he received his wallet, Sims removed $250 and handed it to the jail officer, obtained a
receipt, and left the jail.
Shortly thereafter, Sims went to a nearby hospital and was examined by a physician, Dr. Wilson. The doctor performed tests and determined that Sims had had a mild
heart attack the previous evening, which had brought on the dizziness.
There was absolutely no evidence that he had been drinking the night before. There was absolutely no alcohol or any drugs in his blood when tested. Sims contacted one
of his lawyer friends in the community, Jeff Arlington, who met him back at the county jail. The men entered the jail and Arlington asked to speak with Sheriff Abraham
“Abe” Giles. Sheriff Giles was the sheriff of the county and invited the men into the office. “Abe,” said Arlington, “You guys really screwed up last night. You pulled
over my attorney friend, here, Mac Sims, who suffered a mild heart attack. He was thrown in one of your deputy’s cars and taken to your jail. Then he was thrown in the
drunk tank. Sometime between the time he was arrested, taken to drunk tank, and let out this morning, he lost his expensive watch and some valuable rings he was
wearing. I want to know where that property is. Where are the deputies who made this ‘arrest,’ anyway? I understand from the paperwork that they were Arthur and Smith.
I’d like to talk to them right away. They have some explaining to do.”
1. Should the sheriff attempt to provide an explanation for the missing watch and jewelry?
2. You strongly suspect that the officers who put Sims in the “drunk tank” weren’t particularly careful in removing Sims’ personal effects. Thus, you surmise, one or
more of the drunk tank occupants probably stole those items from Sims while he was passed out and disabled. Who should be held accountable for the missing items?
3. What ethical standards should govern the processing of arrestees in this situation? How could they be enforced? Discuss.
4. What are the ethical responsibilities of Officers Arthur and Smith when making arrests of suspects who appear to be intoxicated?
5. What if the person stopped by police is truly diabetic and suffering from a diabetic problem such as a blackout?
6. Who is liable for the stolen property? Why? Explain.
The drunk Mayor
a patrol officer, you, John Saunders, are only doing your job when you stop a car for running a red light. Unfortunately, the driver of the car happens to be the
mayor, Delores Claibourne. You give her a ticket anyway, but the next morning you are called into the captain’s office and told in no uncertain terms that you screwed
up. There is an informal policy extending “courtesy” to city politicians. Several nights later, observed the mayor’s car weaving erratically across lanes and speeding.
stop the car and walk to the driver’s side door. When the mayor, Mrs. Claibourne, rolls down her window, smell alcohol. decide to give Mrs. Claibourne a sobriety test,
having her walk toe-to-toe in a straight line. fails the test. Wanted to take a breath test voluntarily, but refuses. then place her under arrest and take her to the
city jail, where she is held for five hours. Refusal to take a breath test or submit to any type of test that would determine blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) is
grounds for suspending one’s driver’s license. Mayor Claibourne is belligerent the entire time that she is being held and it clear that she is drunk. At some point,
she passes out on a cot. While she is unconscious, one of the deputies in charge illegally takes a blood sample from her and has it tested. Mayor Claibourne registers
.26 BAC, well over the .08 BAC legal limits for drunken driving charges. a note of this in her arrest report, which you file. Eventually, Mayor Claiborne’s lawyer
arrives and arranges for her release.
The next day, you are called into the chief’s office and placed on unpaid suspension for 90 days. You protest the suspension, but the general agreement around the
station is that there is nothing you can or should do about it. You return to work and discover that all of your paperwork filed about the drunk-driving incident
involving Mayor Claibourne has been destroyed. Her BAC results have also disappeared. No report was ever made to the media about the incident.
1. What ethical dilemmas are created by virtue of the fact that the arrestee is the mayor?
2. Should any special considerations be made for this mayor, given her position? What should the policy be for any elected official in this community?
3. What are some ethical problems with the mayor’s confinement at the city jail for the five-hour period?
4. Did anyone violate any laws or the mayor’s rights?
5. What should you, Officer Saunders, do to reclaim your good name? Should the newspapers be contacted? Why or why not? Discuss the actions of that eventful evening
and the ethical dilemmas that arose

incidents that are so large that it cannot effectively answer the question. Not want the Deep Water Horizon or a hurricane unless you can discuss the hurricane as it
relates to a town or city but not an entire region.
use the same incident you used in the Week 2 forum unless I stated in your feedback that it was not a good incident to use for the forum. You will then need to choose
another one for this assignment.
1. Summarize the incident.
2. Breakdown and discuss the sections used in the ICS.
3. What role did the Incident Commander play in this incident?
4. What were some mistakes made during the ICS process?
5. How could the ICS have been improved upon in this incident.
