OHIO COUNTY, W.Va. (WTRF) — Bethlehem Police Officer Rusty Jewell was arraigned Wednesday in front of Magistrate Patricia Murphy.
He was served a summons, which means he appeared in court by his own accord.
Jewell was formally charged with three misdemeanors: duty upon striking a fixture upon a highway, driving too fast for road conditions and falsely reporting an emergency incident.
His bond was set at $1,000 personal recognizance.
There is no hearing set just yet.
7News reached out to Bethlehem’s Mayor Aaron Snider, who says Jewell is still on duty following the court appearance.
