48 year old Sheldon Perkins was fired on September 27th according to State Police spokesman Taylor Scrantz. Perkins was arrested on August 24th and charged with battery of a police officer, resisting arrest and DWI.
Arrest records say a trooper pulled Perkins over for speeding and changing lanes improperly. Perkins cooperated at first and complied with a sobriety test, but pushed the trooper as he was being arrested.
