A grand jury indicted Cincinnati police Sgt. Jeff Brunswick today on two counts of obstruction and four counts of unauthorized use of property. He accessed a police database in February for personal use and is charged with helping two criminals escape prosecution.
With a history of disciplinary actions, he is no stranger to breaking the law.
In 1990, the department fired him for recklessly operating a vehicle and lying about the incident. He then successfully sued to get his job back.
His other troubles include bumping a fleeing suspect with a car and stalking a female police officer.
In 2011, he found himself in more trouble after striking a fellow officer in a bar. After various infractions, he has somehow managed to keep his job as a Cincinnati police officer.
Brunswick faces jail time if convicted. In the meantime, he has been suspended without pay and has lost his police powers. His future as a police officer depends on the outcome of his current charges.
