DEXTER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- A December crash on an icy roadway involving an off-duty Washtenaw County sheriff's detective has prompted an internal investigation. reports Tuesday that records it obtained under the Freedom of Information Act suggest that the detective may have violated department policy when he did not notify a supervisor shortly after the crash. The unmarked sheriff's vehicle was damaged in the Dec. 10 crash in Dexter Township northwest of Ann Arbor.
The records show a deputy who investigated the accident drove the detective home after being assured the detective would notify his supervisor when he got home.
