SYLVANIA, Ohio - A police officer was suspended for three days without pay in a tussle over whether he whacked his mustache to regulation length.
The facial hair of Officer Ron Dicus was the subject of a three-hour hearing Tuesday night before the Sylvania Township Board of Trustees.
Trustees determined the nine-year police veteran had been insubordinate. Dicus countered that he shortened his bushy mustache once when he was warned and again when he was charged.
Police Chief Robert Metzger described the 'stache as a "General Custer-type" that extended below the mouth in violation of department policy.
Dicus said he plans to take the dispute to arbitration.

Sylvania Township officer suspended, within a whisker of termination

Sylvania Township officer suspended, within a whisker of termination

In tonsorial circles, it's sometimes called "The Quick Draw" - a mustache moniker those in law enforcement might heartily appreciate.

But the Sylvania Township police chief didn't and last night the township trustees agreed unanimously, telling one of their patrol officers not so fast.

Officer Ron Dicus was suspended for three days without pay for insubordination for disobeying orders to trim his mustache.

During a three-hour, quasi-judicial hearing before the trustees, with lawyers on behalf of both parties examining witnesses, police Chief Robert Metzger described Officer Dicus' mustache as being a "George Custer-type."

Apparently a 'stache was in vouge about 100 years ago in law enforcement. It was cool to look like Rolly Fingers back in the 70's too.
What Ron Dicus should do is shave off both sides to get the "Der Furher" look. Then see what the brass thinks.
