Foreclosures during the Great Recession added to thousands of blighted properties in Columbus. But, a state program helped fund demolition of many of those houses and apartment units.
Trooper Fired After Latest Drunk Driving Charge
The State Highway Patrol has fired a trooper accused of driving drunk and hitting two parked cars outside a Short North bar.
Jeremy Garner, 35, was fired last week after other troopers testified they tried to keep him from driving away Skully’s Music Diner after a night of drinking in February.
Other troopers say Garner became “hostile” before leaving.
Garner was previously convicted of drunken driving in 2007.
