Judge orders remote breath testing in Osage County Sheriff case
ST. LOUIS - A St. Louis County judge ordered a new term of Osage County Sheriff Michael Dixon's probation Thursday. The judge ruled Dixon will have to undergo remote breath testing.
Dixon was scheduled to appear in court following his arrest last week on an unlawful use of a weapon charge.
Dixon was accused of being drunk and waving around a loaded handgun at a Hartsburg bar. The sheriff was on probation at the time after pleading guilty to harassing a Belle police officer in 2014. The probation terms said Dixon could not be at a bar or consume alcohol.
The special prosecutor in the case, from Phelps County, said Thursday's hearing was pushed back to be heard May 27 to give them enough time to gather and review more evidence.
