Complaint against deputy investigated

monocourthouse2008Mono District Attorney Tim Kendall has confirmed that a complaint was filed with his office against a Mono Sheriff’s deputy. Kendall said his office has opened an investigation which he hopes to conclude within the next couple of weeks. He said he could not further comment at this time.

Tribal Chairman of the Bridgeport Indian Colony, John Glazier, also confirmed a complaint. When asked if a member of his tribe had filed a complaint against a Mono deputy for assault, Glazier said, “Yes.”

Glazier declined to say much more. He just said there was “an incident.” Glazier alleges that the tribe “has a history with this deputy.” He also said that a complaint was filed with the DA, the Sheriff’s Department and the Board of Supervisors.

Glazier indicated that the tribal member involved is a minor. He also said that the tribe is “making contacts outside of the State with other governmental agencies.”

Asked if his Department would investigate this complaint, Mono Sheriff Ralph Obenberger said, “Yes, we investigate any complaints we receive.”

Sugarmanolia,

Ever thought that nothing happened because the deputy did nothing wrong. Just because someone files a complaint, doesn’t mean it was valid. In our great country, you are innocent until proven guilty. That standard is for everyone.

Hey Liz, I have nothing personal against the deputy. Do you think they should do this ‘saturation’ again? Targeting a certain group that are easily identified and then finding a reason to pull them over? Even before last year, I had heard from burners who said they knew purposely drive… Read more »

Ms Magnolia – I personally would be quite upset if my child’s doctor were using illegal drugs, especially one which is frequently used for rape. He “ruined” his own life. But in any case you might want to consider what your rather strident and nearly constant defense of the poor… Read more »

quite simply, I just read the article I posted the link to (likely because BM is coming up again) and this was the most closely related article to post to. Personally, I’d be more concerned if my pediatrician was using alcohol or pot everyday as compared to rare, sporadic recreational… Read more »

It will be a sad day when a Mono County LEO is in trouble and in need of assistance and the only thing the public will do is pull out their cell phones and video it.

It’s already happened elsewhere and it might come to that here

As displayed by his own actions multiple times Obenberger doesn’t have any kind of conscience about anything he does. All he cares about is himself and all his wife cared about was keeping him in his position as Sheriff. Thus her desperate rants. The bad karma he has spewed all… Read more »

This is the same deputy that there was a grand jury complaint against a few years ago and you guessed it nothing happened to him.

Maybe the Feds will get something done about his behavior.

Just another reason this department should be thoroughly investigated. From the top down. I suppose the BOS will just take that wait around and see what happens from this issue stance….. seems to be working so well for them. I hope the tribe can get farther with their complaints than… Read more »
