CORRECTION: Wabash County deputy’s FORMER GIRLFRIEND busted on DUIPosted by Jack Howser on Wednesday, August 1st, 2012 @ 11:00 am.
Unfortunately, WE didn’t…our source did. Which is really, really bizarre, given the source.
We were contacted early this morning by a trusted source of more than eight years who told us that Wabash County Deputy Ron Connor was arrested on DUI last night, 07.31.12. This source is a public official and knows whereof they’re speaking, and we clarified a couple of things, then went with the story.
Connor is best known to readers of Disclosure as the guy who took down crazyman John Summers at the Orio Chowder two years ago this month, in a scene shown below; Connor is the one on the right at the squad:
However, as it turns out, it wasn’t Connor, it was his ex girlfriend, Amy M. Kidd, 32, who was stopped within the city of Mt. Carmel for DUI by Sgt. Johnson.
How this got convoluted into being Ron Connor being stopped is beyond us, unless there was a screwup in the text communication (one of the most secure forms we use, actually, as texts can be intercepted, but not as easily as emails or phone calls), and this is what we suspect. But it did, and we’re formally apologizing to Connor for any embarrassment this may have caused him or his family.
From the original post: Reports about Connor having problems with his wife, including numerous domestics to which local authorities were frequently called, have hit Disclosure‘s emails and phones, but no formal charges were ever filed, so the only reports that could made were that they were “reports.”
We have been under assault as our expansion continues, and we don’t believe our good source intentionally gave us bad info. But there have been a lot of weird things happening lately….we’ll keep you posted on how those are going. And, as well, if anything further develops on the Kidd matter, and we’ll bring it to you in the pages of the upcoming print version, which hits the stands beginning next Monday, August 6; be sure to renew your subscription (you have until Monday morning), or, as always, you can subscribe to the online e-version, now available; just click the PayPal link.
