Forsyth County Sheriff Bill Schatzman docks himself after mixing beer and county vehicles. Guess he felt like he had to after coming down on the deputies for drinking some cold ones at the county crib:
Schatzman’s pay forfeiture came at a time when his office was swirling in politics. In May, he suspended several deputies after he said he found out that they drank alcohol at a cookout in 2003 at a house that the sheriff’s office uses as an office for narcotics officers.
I can remember at least three episodes where Barney Fife had a couple of drinks on county time and county. They were by accident, but he enjoyed them nonetheless.
