Freeborn County deputy running for sheriff responds to allegations

Posted: Updated:
ALBERT LEA, Minn (KTTC) -- One Freeborn County deputy who was placed on paid administrative leave the same day he filed his papers to run for sheriff is speaking up.

Deputy Dale Glazier spent the past few days at home following allegations of misconduct. At this time Glazier has not been told what those allegations are and is learning most of the details from members of the media.

Freeborn County Administrator John Kluever said the Rochester Police Department is running the investigation, and could conclude its work by the end of the week. Glazier said no one from the Rochester Police Department has contacted him yet for information.

Glazier said small situations like this have happened ever since he started talking about running for sheriff, but this is a new level.

"I knew there would be a lot of accusations about me or my family. That is just politics. I did not expect this much this soon," said Glazier. "We are keeping our head up and trying to stay positive and we are not going to stoop to their level. We are just going to stay positive and move forward."

Prior to running for sheriff, Glazier said that his record was spotless. He said he is beginning to wonder if these allegations are politically motivated.
