Missouri Sheriff Under Investigation in Another County
The sheriff of mid-Missouri's Osage County is under investigation in another county, but authorities aren't yet offering details about the investigation.
Maj. Tom Reddin of the Boone County Sheriff's Department told KMIZ-TV that Osage County Sheriff Michael Dixon is being investigated for activities in Boone County in early March. Reddin declined further comment.
Dixon is on probation for two years after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor harassment charge in 2014. The victim was a female officer from Belle, Missouri.
The Missouri Department of Public Safety revoked Dixon's peace officer license in January 2015, but a Cole County judge reinstated it in October.
Messages seeking comment from Dixon were not returned.
