Mason County West Virginia Dispatcher Josh Riffle Arrested And Suspended For Obstructing And Officer


MASON COUNTY, WEST VIRGINIA — A 911 dispatcher in Mason County is on administrative leave after being arrested Friday.

The Mason County Sheriff’s Department says Josh Riffle was arrested on a charge of obstructing an officer, a misdemeanor.

Deputies say the arrest was related to a domestic call in December 2010 in Mason County. According to the deputy who was out on the call, the suspect fled from the scene and the deputy called a BOLO (be on the lookout) into 911. The deputy says Riffle didn’t call in the BOLO and the suspect drove over to Ohio.

The call originated when a medic reported seeing what appeared to be a domestic altercation between a man and a woman. She said it happened on Ohio River Road near the old Panasote Plant entrance.

According to the sheriff’s office, Riffle has been placed on administrative leave.
