Update: Remember Officer Jody Showalter from Sandusky? Read the section below if you need to brush up on your current events. Showalter, who has been involved in four traffic accidents while on duty, is now being sued by a mother and daughter who say they were injured when Showalter ran a stop sign and hit their car. (Sandusky Register)

***

Sandusky officer Jody Showalter was on patrol Wednesday night when he stopped his cruiser to chase after a teen. Unfortunately, he forgot to put the cruiser in park, so it rolled on down the street, crashing into two cars. The department is investigating the incident, reports the Sandusky Register, which could be bad for Showalter: less than two months ago he was involved in a crash that sent two adults and a kid to the hospital. For that, he was suspended three days without pay and ordered to take a driving class. Coincidentally, or not, that driving class was to be on June 21.
