|Description||A state-owned Chevy Suburban carrying Gov. John Kasich was involved in a minor traffic crash this afternoon on I-71 Downtown. |
The responding Columbus police officer charged with compiling the crash report?
That would be Officer Robert Barrett, the city freeway police officer whom Kasich called “an idiot” for pulling him over a few years back.
It was Barrett whom Kasich thrice called “an idiot” during a January 2011 meeting with most of the state's Environmental Protection Agency employees. Kasich made the reference while rehashing Barrett’s pulling him over in 2008 on Rt. 315 for not moving over for a stopped emergency vehicle with its lights flashing.
