Corrections Officer Admits He Came to Work Drunk

A corrections officer in Leelanau County is arrested by his own department for drunk driving.

Jeffrey Kassab showed up for work Wednesday night smelling of alcohol.

A supervisor and road patrol Sergeant took him to an interview room where they conducted field sobriety tests.

Kassab failed those tests, and was placed under arrest. He was also given a breathalyzer. His blood alcohol content was .25.

Under Michigan law, that means Kassab was super drunk and is now facing stiffer penalties.

He has been suspended with pay as the sheriff's department continues its investigation.
9&10's Marisa McKay was in Leelanau today and talked with Undersheriff Steve Morgan about how the department plans to move forward, and how they're dealing with Kassab's actions.
