EDGEWOOD, Ind. (WISH) — An Edgewood police officer accused of operating while intoxicated in a crash that killed one man and badly injured a pregnant woman won’t be paid while he’s suspended from the job, 24-Hour News 8 news partner The Herald Bulletin reports.
James Foutch has been suspended since the April 6 crash that killed Jesse Sperry. His wife, who was nine months pregnant, was injured and had to have an emergency delivery. The mom and baby were recently reunited.
On Monday, the Edgewood Town Council unanimously voted to put Foutch on unpaid leave. The council said in a prepared statement it would hold off on any other actions until Foutch’s legal case was complete.
