Iowa Sheriff Delaying Investigation Into Woodbury County Official
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) The Woodbury County Sheriff's Office is delaying an internal investigation into whether a county jail guard should lose his job over a report of domestic assault.
Sheriff Dave Drew told the Sioux City Journal on Tuesday that he's awaiting the return of a key office leader to begin the investigation into 43-year-old David Tripp. Drew says he expects the internal investigation to begin Thursday and finish by Friday. Drew previously said the investigation would start Monday.
Tripp has been charged with misdemeanor aggravated assault after an alleged confrontation with his wife on Saturday at their Sioux City home where he reportedly fired a gun into the air. No one was injured.
Tripp, who is also an elected county supervisor, did not attend the County Board's regular meeting Tuesday.
