Harless, 45, was placed on administrative leave shortly after the incident, and he later was moved to medical leave. In an interview with The Plain Dealer, Police Chief Dean McKimm would not be specific about Harless’ medical condition, saying only that the leave “was related to a doctor’s recommendation.” Harless has been with the department about 15 years.
So... threaten to murder people, abuse people, bring disgrace on your whole department, and you get medical leave. With pay, of course.
By the way, I wonder if the department had any words with his partners who just stood there and let him do this crap(when they didn't assist)?
