Arkansas State Police say criminal investigator suspended


JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas State Police say the commander of a Criminal
Investigation Division was suspended without pay for a week in December.

An investigative file released Wednesday says Lt. Brant Tosh violated several
department policies, including unbecoming conduct, telling agents not to file
for overtime, using agents and inmates for personal work and driving his state
police vehicle for personal use.

Tosh is commander of CID Troop F based in Jonesboro. His father is Republican
state Rep. Dwight Tosh, who is a retired state police captain.

The file says Brant Tosh initially denied violating policy, but it shows he
signed a disciplinary agreement in which he admitted to the policy violations.
