RCSO Chief Deputy Pat Clayton Suspended for 2 Days

-

Richmond County Sheriff Richard Roundtree has suspended Chief Deputy Pat Clayton for two days without pay.

“Something happened awhile ago,” Sheriff Roundtree said. “He was written up and given two days suspension, so he took them today and tomorrow.”

A disciplinary file obtained by The Jail Report describes the reason for the suspension:

“On April 5, Chief Deputy Pat Clayton was operating his county issued vehicle when he went to the car wash located at the Circle K, 15th Street/Reynolds Drive, Augusta. Chief Clayton pulled up to the car wash entrance and found that his debit card would not work at the touch pad. At this point, Chief Clayton backed out slightly and then turned to the right to go around the entrance. At this point, Chief Clayton backed out slightly and then turned to the right to go around the entrance. Chief Clayton did not see a small two foot pole to the right and struck same, causing about $800 damage. Chief Clayton acknowledges that he should have been more observant. He also realizes that this is unacceptable especially in light of the fact that he had another at-fault accident of a similar nature almost two years ago.”
