Convicted trooper back to work

A long-time state trooper convicted of a recent drunken-driving incident is working at the Milan post.

Sgt. Tony J. Myers, 47, of Huron, pleaded no contest to physical control Aug. 6 in Huron Municipal Court. His driver's license was suspended for one year, but was granted driving privileges for work.

"He started here Monday (Aug. 11) doing administrative duties," said Lt. Brett Gockstetter, the Milan post commander.

Gockstetter said Myers' assignment isn't permanent, but likely will last through the time the patrol completes an administrative investigation.

"It's definitely not permanent," Gockstetter said Friday.

Myers most recently was an assistant post commander in Norwalk. A trooper since 1990, he has worked at the Sandusky and Swanton posts also.
