Macomb County Deputy Sheriff Pleads In Drunken-Driving Case



A Macomb County deputy sheriff is scheduled for sentencing March 26 after he agreed to plead guilty to a charge he was drinking before he crashed his car last month


John Rollo, 45, also faces department discipline in connection with the Jan. 22 incident.


According to authorities, Rollo lost control of his car about 1:30 a.m. Jan. 22 and the vehicle overturned along 22 Mile Road near Card Road in Macomb Township.


Macomb Township fire personnel transported Rollo and two passengers to McLaren Medical Center-Macomb in Mount Clemens, where they were treated for minor injuries. No other vehicles were involved in the crash


An investigation into the accident revealed Rollo’s blood alcohol level was 0.20, more than twice the legal limit for intoxication, said county Sheriff Anthony Wickersham.


According to court records, Rollo was charged initially with operating (a vehicle) while intoxicated, but the deputy agreed to plead guilty to operating while impaired, a lesser offense


He’ll undergo court-ordered alcohol screening before appearing in 41A District Court in Shelby Township for sentencing next month. Wickersham said the sergeant also will be subject to sanctions on the job. The sheriff did not say what those sanctions would be


Internally, he’ll be disciplined,” the sheriff said. “He won’t lose his job, (but) we do take this seriously



Because Rollo is a police officer and especially a command-level officer, “We hold (him) to a higher standard.

Rollo is still on duty with the sheriff department. He declined comment.
